The United Nations outlines combined strategy to ensure the survival of millions of flood affected people in Pakistan

The emergency situation caused by the floods in Pakistan is far from being over and is worsening for the most vulnerable people. Three UN agencies today warned of the urgent need to quickly scale up the response in the most recently flooded areas in the south while not losing sight of working towards an early recovery in the centre and the north of the country.
In a coordinated effort, the directors of the Emergency divisions of UNICEF, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) this week visited flood affected areas in Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to survey the devastation.
“The sheer scale of this disaster is unprecedented and requires unprecedented measures,” said Dr. Eric Laroche, Assistant Director-General of Health Action in Crisis of the World Health Organization. “One of the many challenges we are facing is to provide assistance to people cramped in scattered spontaneous settlements, thus making it very difficult to address life threatening risks and to provide the health coverage they so desperately need,” he added.
