Statement about the Current Situation in Tigray, Ethiopia


Sep 10, 2021

The World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) notes with concern the reports that around 5 million people need humanitarian assistance, and more than two million people were forced to flee their homes in the Tigray region of Ethiopia.1

The WFPHA supports the United Nations’ call for an immediate end to hostilities, guaranteed, unrestricted humanitarian access, the re-establishment of public health services in all affected areas, and the creation of conditions that allow an Ethiopian-led dialogue to find a solution to the political crisis.2
