The scale of the crisis, and the limited scope of response, means that Somalis will continue to suffer unless intensified efforts to end the violence and meet health needs are made. WHO is advocating for the safety and neutrality of civilians, health staff and facilities, and seeking intensified support to ease Somalia's humanitarian crisis.
