  • Reduced access to humanitarian interventions specifically, feeding and health programmes, mainly in the Shabelles and Hiran regions

  • Reduced household food access persists, but may improve with good harvests, milk availability is still low

  • Inappropriate child feeding and care practices

  • Poor access to sanitation facilities and safe water in rural LHZs

  • Civil insecurity all regions remain the epicenter of civil strife

Mitigating factors
