WHO has significantly scaled up its presence and activities in Somalia to respond to increasing health needs and prevent a worst-case scenario for millions of people at risk of famine, but resources are urgently required to enable the necessary interventions. Out of a total of US$ 825 million appealed for by the United Nations for the first half of 2017 for the pre-famine response, US$ 85 million is required by the health sector, of which US$ 13 million is required by WHO to reach 4.3 million people in first half of 2017.
