Afghanistan: Conflict Induced Displacements in 2017 - Snapshot (as of 16 April 2017)

From 1 January to 6 April 2017, 58,700 individuals fled their homes due to conflict in Afghanistan, with 26 of 34 provinces recording forced displacement. Constrained humanitarian access hinders assessments, preventing verification of the full extent of displacement and undermining provision of assistance and services. Inadequate shelter, food insecurity, insufficient access to sanitation and health facilities, as well as a lack of protection, often result in precarious living conditions that jeopardises the well-being and dignity of displaced families.
