Remote IM Support to the IFRC Emergency Operations Philippines – Measles Outbreak. The number of cases of measles has been increasing in the Philippines over the past several years, but since late 2018 there has been a dramatic increase in cases nationally. There has been 261 deaths between 1 January and 2 March 2019 in comparison to 202 deaths in 2018. Between 2017 and 2018, there was a 547 per cent increase of measles cases reported nationwide1. This appeal seeks a total amount of CHF 2 million to enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support Philippines Red Cross (PRC) to respond to the current measles outbreaks across the Philippines from March until September 2019. The number of measles cases continues to increase particularly in National Capital Region and isolated provinces. Health facilities and public health institutions are overwhelmed, due to influx of active measles cases particularly among children aged six months to five years. Philippines
