High number of AWD , Measles and Malaria cases were reported by different agencies
in Mogadishu. Banadir hospital admits most of the cases and reports to the cluster
regularly. In week 46 (14 – 20 November), the hospital reported 291 cases of AWD with

reported from the hospital. In week 47 (21-27 November), Banadir hospital reported 263

cases in week 47 comparing week 46.

patients come from Hodan, Wardhigley, Howlwadag and Wadajir districts. The doctor
