Short Term Wash preparedness and prevention (Somalia)


Titre : Short Term Wash preparedness and prevention (Somalia)

Pays /Région : Somalie

Code projet : CHF-DMA-0489-272ER

Durée : 02-05-2012 // 03-09-2012

Somalia is recovering from a famine that was declared in the middle of 2011 with devastating effects on the coping mechanisms of the population, however, 2.34 milion people remain in crisis (FSNAU post dey report february 2012). The situation has left people weakened and prone to outbreaks of diseases. After the drought that caused the famine, floods have had devistating effects in the whole of middle shabelle (Wocca report shared with the WASH and other clusters) with a high risk of AWD outbreaks.
The cluster response plan wants to mitigate the risk in three ways, prevention, preparedness and response. Prevention is currently being undertaken by chlorinating wells in high risk areas. This prevention measure can be strenghtened by giving out sanitation agents to the population. For preparedness Wocca has some equipment in store but the effectiveness can be hugely improved by having more stocks and in some cases stocking items that were not there. The response part is strongly linked with the preparedness. One of problems currently faced is that the usual supplies that are given by UNICEF cannot be obtained since the organisation is currently banned from operating by the local authorities. Wocca is however able to purchase their own good in Mogadishu.
