Approximately 165,000 people have been displaced to communities within Al-Hassakeh, Ar-Raqqa, Aleppo and Deir-ez-Zor Governorates.

Of the displaced population, the estimated number of women of reproductive age is 41,250. The mobility dynamics in the area are still very fluid as IDPs continue to change their location. Many have been displaced multiple times from one area to another, further increasing their vulnerability.

Protection partners formerly present in Ras al Ein, Tel Abyad and Ein Issa have diverted programs and resources to respond to the protection needs of the newly displaced population in Tal Tamer, Al-Hassakeh and Raqqa areas.

Stocks of food and medicine, as well as necessary pipelines for bringing aid into the area and medical referral pathways to move those in need of adequate care facilities, are in place to meet many of the immediate needs, and partners continue to scale up their response across all areas.
