Situation Report

Common operational challenges

Humanitarian response urgently requires more funding to sustain and expand implemented activities; many partners highlight critical funding gaps, including the response to COVID-19.

Humanitarian organizations should adapt their response modalities in the context of the pandemic to minimize the risk of infection, especially for frontline of workers.

Movement limitations throughout the country, delays in importing some supplies, the availability of transport as well as fuel shortages have increased logistics challenges.

The magnitude of the needs requires a humanitarian response with greater operational capacity, including openness to the work of national and international NGOs with experience in health emergencies and in line with humanitarian principles.
