- UNHCR, with WFP inputs, commissioned modelling into the trends of populations affected by humanitarian emergencies between 2013 to 2016. With a growth from 314 million to 479 million people affected, the total number of PLHIV affected by humanitarian emergencies increased from 1.71 million to 2.57 million; and the ratio of PLHIV affected by a humanitarian emergency increased from 1 in 20 to 1 in 14. The modelling demonstrates rising numbers and levels of vulnerability of PLHIV in humanitarian emergencies.
- Data collection for the analysis was from specialist public domain global databases. Five selected countries (Cameroon, DRC, Kenya, Nigeria and South Sudan) were studied in more detail (deep dives) to check the general assumptions in the main country level analysis.
- The objective of the analysis was to estimate the number of adults, children, adolescents, young adults and pregnant women living with HIV adversely affected by emergencies to the extent that diagnosis, care, treatment and adherence would be compromised.
