Health actors across Somalia recorded more than 10,000 cholera cases, including nearly 450 deaths, between January and mid-June—a significant increase compared to the number of cholera cases recorded in 2015. Health and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) are among the priority interventions for the cholera response, according to the UN.
USAID/OFDA provided approximately $23 million in new humanitarian funding for the Somalia response since April, bringing the U.S. Government (USG) contribution to nearly $83 million in assistance to date in FY 2016.
As of late June, donors had contributed more than $249 million, or approximately 28 percent, of the $885 million requested by the 2016 Somalia Humanitarian Response Plan to assist 3.5 million of the most vulnerable people in Somalia.
