UNFPA ETHIOPIA RESPONSE TO THE TIGRAY CRISIS Situation Report (15-30 April 2021)

Though there is some progress, access to life-saving health services by the affected-populations remains limited. The health cluster indicates that 141 of the 198 assessed hospitals and health centers remain either partially or fully damaged9 . Health services in the IDP sites are still provided through the mobile health teams of INGOs where and when security permits, with reproductive and maternal health care or treatment for chronic illnesses almost non-existent10 . Referral systems are poor or absent, especially due to the looting of 70% of the ambulances in the region.
