7 June 2015 -- Escalating conflict since January 2014 has left 7.84 people million in need of health assistance. Over the next six months, WHO and Health Cluster partners aim to reach 5.63 million of the 6.95 million people in critical need of health assistance. WHO has already supplied medicines and supplies to treat 3.5 million people. However, WHO and Health Cluster partners may be forced to shut down 84% of health projects unless additional funding is received by 30 June.
