HSOS is a monthly assessment that aims to provide comprehensive, multi-sectoral information about the humanitartian situation inside Syria. The assessment is conducted at the community level covering displacement, shelter and non-food items (SNFI), health, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food security and livelihoods (FSL), and education.
The factsheet presents information gathered in 629 communities across Idleb (311 communities), western Aleppo (211 communities), Hama (91 communities), and Homs (16 communities) governorates. Data was collected during the month of September 2018, and refers to the situation in the Northwest region in August 2018. Findings are indicative rather than representative, and should not be generalised across the region.
For community-level data, datasets are available on the REACH Resource Centre, the Humanitarian Data Exchange, and are also distributed through partners across the humanitarian community.
