As of 12 February 2017, some 152,448 people were living in displacement while over 9,100 have in the past week returned to areas recently retaken by government forces in eastern Mosul. Food, water and fuel are scarce in western Mosul, leading to negative coping mechanisms. It is highly likely that the humanitarian situation will continue to deteriorate as commercial supply routes remain cut off and stocks cannot be replenished. UNFPA was able to distribute 2,500 dignity kits to the most vulnerable women and girls in western Ninewa, in villages close to Telafar that were recently retaken by Government forces. The distribution followed a rapid multi-sectoral assessment including UNFPA that was conducted the week before. UNFPA continued to monitor and provide technical assistance to the reproductive health facilities in East Mosul through a series of field visits. The GBV team also conducted an assessment for initiating activitiesin East Mosul. Construction of UNFPA-supported maternity field hospital commenced in Athba, adjacent to the field hospital being constructed by WHO. Construction of the maternity field hospital is expected to complete by 15 March to serve the IDPs and residents of West Mosul that may be affected military operationsin the areas.

Today, it is widely recognized that improving the status of women and girls and advancing their rights can be a benefit for the whole society. Ensuring access to sexual and reproductive health services and to protection from gender-based violence, among other important measures, improves the health of families and contributes to the economic well-being of entire communities, including during humanitarian emergencies. Many international instruments, conferences and, lately, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have underscored the importance of giving women and girls, including adolescent girls, their rights and eliminating any violence or discrimination that targets them.

The report also indicates that an estimated 14.8 million people lack access to basic healthcare, including 8.8 million living in severely under-served areas. Medical materials are in chronically short supply, and only 45 per cent of health facilities are functioning.

This is the 12th report of the Task Force on Population Movement (TFPM), which is a Technical Working Group of the Yemen Protection Cluster. The report details the latest snapshot on displacement and return in Yemen providing indicative findings related to displacement/return trends, area of origin, duration of displacement, shelter situation and top priority needs.

The data used for the 12th report was collected through October and November, 2016. The TFPM collects data in monthly cycles to monitor trends and provide a further comparative basis for analysis. For this reason, since the publication of the 11th report there have been two ‘rounds’ of data collection supporting the validation of the statistics published in this report.
