and Kalma with diarrheal diseases responsible for many of those deaths affecting mainly young children under 5 and adults older than 50. "Violence was the major cause of death in Muhajiria (72 percent), with all but one of the 25 violent deaths in men."

"The prevalence of acute malnutrition was high, particularly in Kalma where nearly 24 percent of children younger than 5 years were affected. Reported measles vaccination coverage ranged from 46 percent to 70 percent." The surveys also found that even if households had access to food and nonfood items, many still lacked access to safe water and sanitation.

"Additional efforts from humanitarian and governmental actors are urgently needed to guarantee acceptable living standards for these populations," the authors conclude.
