In 2019, drought and inter-communal conflict are expected to leave at least 8 million Ethiopians in need of humanitarian assistance, including nearly 2.9 million people displaced by violence and natural disasters. Populations of internally displaced persons (IDPs) are amongst the most vulnerable in Ethiopia, living in nearly 1,200 informal settlements, often extremely remote and with almost no access to food or basic services. In addition, Ethiopia hosts more than 900,000 refugees reliant on humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs. With GAC’s support, Save the Children Canada is helping to address the health and nutrition needs of up to 39,000 people displaced by the conflicts in the Dawa zone of Ethiopia’s Somali region and Gedeo zone of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples region through support to local health facilities. Given the increased risk of violence for displaced women and girls, the project is focusing on enhancing the capacity of local health facilities to treat acute malnutrition, respond to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), and provide sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) services.
