Displaced people

About 31 000 displaced people have taken refuge at Yar Hussain camp, where searing heat and the threat of monsoon rain exacerbate the health risks faced by the people. WHO is working with partners to ensure that basic health needs are being met. The elderly, along with women and children, are among the most vulnerable in this current crisis.
