In 2016, Ethiopia experienced and responded to several El Niño-driven adverse events with public health repercussions. These events included outbreaks of diseases such as acute watery diarrhoea, meningococcal meningitis and skin diseases. Flooding destroyed health facilities in Afar, Somali and Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ regions and displaced more than 200 000 people. Drought led to the migration of over 450 000 children and 1.8 million pregnant and lactating women due to malnutrition, and a lack of water and fodder for livestock.
