South Sudan – In response to a confirmed measles outbreak in Abyei Administrative Area, IOM led a mass measles vaccination campaign from 10 to 17 October 2016, reaching more than 20,000 children under the age of five years.
The Ministry of Health (MoH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak in September after approximately 50 cases were reported across Abyei. Many of the cases were among children who are under the age of one year and would have been too young to be covered by the last mass measles campaign conducted in early 2016.
Uganda is home to about 400,000 South Sudanese refugees, making it the largest host country in East Africa. Some refugees who have lived in Uganda for up to a decade do not intend to return home.
