According to the latest report from the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO), as of 28 June, 396 cholera cases, including 26 deaths, had been reported in Juba County. Interviews with patients admitted to Juba Teaching Hospital with cholera have revealed knowledge gaps on how the disease is spread. Humanitarian partners called for improved access to safe drinking water, latrine use and good personal and food hygiene.

A. Situation analysis
I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
WFP urgently requires USD 63 million for the next six months to meet the needs of existing operations that are responding to the Burundi crisis.
In Burundi, a recent inter-agency assessment recommended immediate food assistance for 100,000 people in Kirundo, Makamba Provinces and Bujumbura.
Snapshot 24–30 June 2015
Burundi: Turnout at the parliamentary elections was low. Voting stations were targeted and there was a spate of grenade attacks in the capital: several people were injured. Around 1,000 Burundians are leaving the country every day: 62,000 refugees are now in Tanzania, 45,000 in Rwanda, and 10,600 in DRC.
South Sudan: Households in some areas of Unity and Upper Nile states are suspected to be facing Catastrophe (IPC Phase 5) food security outcomes. 5–8% of the country’s population are suffering severe acute malnutrition.
More support needed to address the deteriorating humanitarian context in the country. The net 2015 HRD requirement is still at 41 per cent funded. The relief food caseload is likely to increase following the mid-year review
Limited truck availability to move relief food supplies continue to delay the relief operation
South Sudanese refugees continue to arrive in Gambella at a daily average rate of 209 people. Akobo, Pagak and Pochalla are the main crossing points.
