WASHINGTON, Jul 16 2012 (IPS) - Ahead of an Aug. 2 deadline, the leaders of Sudan and South Sudan over the weekend engaged in their first direct talks since hostilities spiked in late April.
But on Monday, observers here in Washington warned that the framework for the talks remains too narrow, threatening to continue a decades-long trend of ineffectual agreements in Sudan that fail to address underlying issues of governance in Khartoum and marginalisation elsewhere.
CAFOD’s Humanitarian Rapid Response Team has warned of the terrible conditions and rising rates of malnutrition and disease facing refugee children fleeing into the Upper Nile region in South Sudan
The team has just returned from Jamam refugee camp in Maban in South Sudan’s Upper Nile state, where more than 120,000 refugees are living in dire conditions across three camps, as they seek shelter, food and clean water. The camps are approaching full capacity as new refugees arrive on a daily basis.
Aweil Civil Hospital in Northern Bahr el Ghazel State has reported a high number of Malaria cases. The hospital's medical director, Dr. Garang Thomas Dhel told Radio Miraya that 60 percent of the patients they receive, test positive for Malaria.
Garang said that 6 patients have died from complications resulting of Malaria in the past two weeks.
Following is UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson’s address to the nineteenth Summit of the African Union, in Addis Ababa on 15 July:
Thank you for inviting and welcoming me to this important Summit of the African Union.
I take up my new post as Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations in the footsteps of a very distinguished African, Her Excellency Asha-Rose Migiro, who left a sterling record of service to the world Organization. I want to build on her legacy.

JUBA, South Sudan — A year after independence, South Sudan is still battling a lack of staff and resources as it tries to end its distinction of having the highest maternal mortality rate in the world.
In a steaming hot room in South Sudan’s main hospital, women puffing and wailing from labor pains squeeze up next to each other in a maternity ward with just 8 beds.
Current Crisis: Mass atrocity crimes are occurring and urgent action is needed
Populations in Syria continue to face mass atrocity crimes committed by state security forces and affiliated militias. Growing internal armed conflict puts civilians at even greater risk.
JAMAM [ACTED News] – Over 34,000 refugees have fled ongoing conflict in Blue Nile State, Sudan and sought refuge across the border in Jamam refugee camp. The overwhelming majority of refugees arrived without the basic materials necessary to restart agricultural activities, which are the primary livelihoods of this population. This situation is further aggravated by the poor agricultural yields for South Sudan in 2011, which has reduced the small host community’s capacity to provide food stocks, heightening the risk of food insecurity for both populations.
PEACE AND SECURITY COUNCIL
327TH MEETING AT THE LEVEL OF
HEADS OF STATE AND GOVERNMENT
ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA
14 JULY 2012
The Peace and Security Council of the African Union (AU), at its 327 th meeting held on 14 July 2012, adopted the following decision on the situation between the Republic of Sudan and the Republic of South Sudan:
The refugee crisis in South Sudan is worsening, with up to 2000 children a day arriving at already over-crowded and flooded camps, Save the Children said today.
The refugees are converging on South Sudan’s Unity and Upper Nile states, with many eating roots to survive the gruelling journey. Some have even been forced to abandon elderly and weak relatives along the way. Seasonal rains have turned the region into a quagmire making the living conditions and the aid effort far more difficult.
During the week, WHO;
Backstopped health facilities in Twic managed by GOAL with emergency malaria diagnostic materials.
In collaboration with GOAL, the organization conducted health and hygiene promotion campaigns in Agok town.
Continued to support SMoH with data collection, analysis and investigation of rumors on priority diseases in the areas of return and refugee settlement.
Highlights in the 2nd quarter
The invasion by South Sudan of the oil-rich area of Higlig in early April led to further displacement of civilians and a serious deterioration in relations between the two countries.
Fighting between the SAF and SPLM-N continued to affect civilians and cause large-scale displacement, with 205,000 Sudanese refugees now in camps in South Sudan and Ethiopia.

Recent clashes along the disputed border between South Darfur and Western Bahr el Ghazal in South Sudan have led to large-scale displacement and humanitarian emergency in Raja County, South Sudan. A local government official said this week that the clashes, along with fear of LRA attacks, have left more than 10,000 people without basic services such as food and medical care.

South Sudan—As South Sudan celebrates the one year anniversary of its independence, the new nation and its citizenry are in the midst of a critical legal and political process: the drafting of a permanent constitution. Delays in this process risk undermining its credibility among South Sudan’s civil society, opposition political parties, and the international community.
