Severe drought is expected to deepen until the start of the Deyr rainy season in October. The food security and nutrition situation is not expected to improve in some parts of Somalia through the end of 2017, according to FAO-FSNAU post-Gu preliminary results. Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) prevalence is ‘Critical’ at above 15 per cent in 9 out of 12 Internally Displaced People settlements surveyed by FSNAU. More than 3 million people are being reached each month with humanitarian assistance and protection.


AWD/cholera cases and related deaths continue to decline mainly due to preventive actions by humanitarian partners. These include improved access to water, sanitation and hygiene and oral cholera vaccination campaigns. Meanwhile, 13,428 suspected measles cases have been reported since January.
