Contexte
The humanitarian requirement document (HRD) document published January 2017, indicates that this year, there will be 303,000 cases of children under five affected by severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and 2.7 million cases of moderate acute malnutrition (MAM). 9.2 million people are in need of emergency WASH services and 4.4 million people will be affected by disease outbreak. Poor water availability, lack of sanitation, decreased food availability and displacement will significantly increase the risk of morbidity, including from malnutrition, if it is not addressed. The situation is further complicated by outbreaks of acute watery diarrhea (AWD) in many parts of the country, which started in 2015 but has not been fully contained thus far.
