Kyrgyzstan situation report, 11 August 2010



The overall security situation in the southern provinces of Osh and Jalal-Abad has stabilized, but some tension remains. Health authorities have reported no outbreaks of infectious diseases and no cases of acute malnutrition. However, there is a slight increase in cases of seasonal diarrhoea.

The continuation of humanitarian aid supply is at risk owing to substantial funding gaps. Only 20% of the requested US$ 7.7 million for urgently needed health cluster activities, as outlined in the Flash Appeal, has been mobilized so far. If funding gaps persist, WHO activities, mainly focusing on health cluster coordination, surveillance, psychosocial support and mental health, will have to be substantially reduced.
