DPR Korea Needs and Priorities 2016

The protracted humanitarian situation in DPRK is largely forgotten on the global agenda.  The country continues to suffer from food insecurity, as well as limited access to health and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), resulting in chronic malnutrition and poor health outcomes.  An estimated 18 million people are in need of some form of humanitarian assistance.  The 2016 DPR Korea Needs and Priorities seeks a total of US$122 M to respond to the needs of 13 M of the most vulnerable people in the sectors of Food Security, Nutrition, Health and WASH.
