February 2022 - The conflict in northern Ethiopia is well into its second year and has given rise to one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. An estimated 9.4 million people in the three conflict-affected states currently require humanitarian assistance, including up to 90% of the population of the Tigray region. Displacement, disruption of livelihoods and constraints on humanitarian access have left at least 400,000 people facing famine conditions, and human rights abuses, including widespread sexual violence, have marked the conflict since its outset. With GAC’s support, CARE addresses the essential health, water, sanitation and hygiene, and protection needs of conflict-affected populations in Ethiopia’s Tigray region. Project activities include: (1) providing material and technical support to local health facilities and the operation of mobile health units in hard-to-reach areas; (2) restoring damaged water and sanitation facilities serving internally displaced people sites and host communities; and (3) training health providers and local authorities to better address critical protection needs. The project also includes a development component, through which CARE is supporting local stakeholders to (4) strengthen durable health and nutrition services; (5) improve approaches related to water resource management; and (6) develop sustainable and institutionalized sexual and gender-based violence prevention and response strategies for the long-term.
