Snapshot 25 November–1 December 2015

  • Cameroon: New data indicate that 158,316 people are internally displaced – this is 65,000 more than the previous estimate. The vast majority have been displaced by Boko Haram-related violence, with fewer than 15% displaced by flooding and other natural disasters. Movement stays within Far North region, and Logone-et-Chari hosts around 60% of all IDPs.

  • South Sudan: Malaria has reached unprecedented proportions – 1.6 million cases had been reported by the end of November and there is a severe shortage of anti-malarial medication. Bentiu hospital has reported a peak of 200 cases a day, and the caseload was continuing to increase in Yida and Ajuong Thok refugees camps in mid-November.

  • DRC: 180,000 people affected by floods in Tshopo since 7 November are in need of humanitarian assistance, particularly WASH. The situation could aggravate the cholera epidemic in the province. More than 17,900 houses have been destroyed, schools and markets are closed, and food prices have increased sharply.

  • CAR: The number of IDPs is 18% higher than that reported before the surge in violence that began in Bangui at the end of September. Another 69,100 IDPs brings the estimated total to more than 447,500 across the country, and 58,000 in Bangui.
