Emergency Infant and Young Child Feeding Assessment among Internally Displaced Persons – Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, and Zaporizhia, Ukraine

In April 2014, fighting began between pro-Russian separatists groups and government forces in the Donbass region in Eastern Ukraine. This followed a revolution which occurred in February 2014, resulting in the expulsion of then president Yanukovych. Since the fighting began, almost one and a half million people have been internally displaced and over five million people have been affected by the conflict. Internally displaced persons (IDPs) face many economic hardships and many have been unable to find work. The majority of IDPs from the conflict region live in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, along with the three bordering oblasts of Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, and Zaporizhia.
