UNICEF South Sudan Humanitarian Situation Report #40, 10 - 23 September 2014

Highlights

  • According to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification for September, while the food security situation has improved, the nutrition situation will remain dire for remainder of the year. The prevalence of global acute malnutrition (GAM) is likely to remain above emergency thresholds (GAM >15%), as defined by WHO, especially in conflict-affected states. High levels of acute malnutrition are attributed to inadequate food consumption, morbidity, dietary and feeding habits, and severely constrained health and nutrition service delivery.
