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, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Canada is providing ongoing support to Gambella Hospital, the only top-level medical facility with surgical capacity serving a combined population of roughly one million South Sudanese refugees and Ethiopian host communities. In 2019, MSF is focusing on sexual and reproductive health services, including psychosocial and mental health support for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence.
