HSOS is a monthly assessment that aims to provide comprehensive, multi-sectoral information about the humanitarian 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 needs and conditions.
The factsheet presents information gathered in 1,048 communities across Hama (89 communities), Idleb (426 communities), northern Aleppo (452 communities), and western Aleppo* (81 communities) governorates. Data was collected during the month of February 2019, and refers to the situation in the northwest region in January 2019. 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.
*The northern and western parts of Aleppo, where humanitarian response and coordination is conducted from the northwest rather than the northeast.
