March 2019 – An estimated 7.1 million people across South Sudan are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection across the country as a result of armed conflict, food insecurity, malnutrition, economic decline and disease. Approximately 1.9 million people are internally displaced within South Sudan and almost 2.3 million South Sudanese have sought protection in neighbouring countries. An estimated 6.2 million people are currently severely food insecure, with malnutrition rates over emergency thresholds. Outbreaks of communicable diseases have strained an already overwhelmed health system. Humanitarian access remains restricted in many areas and large numbers of people are accessible only by air drops. With GAC’s support, Doctors without Borders Canada is providing emergency health services for up to 167,000 conflict affected people in Upper Nile and Jonglei states. Project activities include: (1) providing primary health care, including 38,000 malaria patients treated and 52,000 vaccinations; (2) providing sexual and reproductive healthcare services, including 6,684 post-natal consultations and 3,440 assisted deliveries; and (3) providing secondary healthcare services, including 3,969 inpatient admissions and 1,400 malnutrition cases treated with therapeutic feeding.
