SENS was conducted for South Sudanese refugee camps in White Nile State, Sudan to assess the general health and nutrition status of the refugee population, and formulate workable recommendations for appropriate nutritional and public health interventions. Results indicate critical (>15%) global acute malnutrition (GAM) across all camps, with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) above emergency levels (>2%). The findings also point to the wider effects of chronic under-funding for the response, especially for WASH, health and livelihoods assistance.

815 millones de personas padecen hambre, con millones de niños amenazados de malnutrición
15 de septiembre de 2017, Roma – Tras haber disminuido de forma constante durante más de una década, vuelve a aumentar el hambre en el mundo, que afectó a 815 millones de personas en 2016 -el 11 por ciento de la población mundial-, según la nueva edición del informe anual de la ONU sobre seguridad alimentaria y nutrición publicada hoy. Al mismo tiempo, múltiples formas de malnutrición amenazan la salud de millones de personas.
World hunger is estimated to be on the rise again as conflict and human-induced disasters as well as natural disasters are contributing to setbacks in food security. This year’s The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World (SOFI) warns that the long-term declining trend in undernourishment seems to have come to a halt and may have reversed. Meanwhile, though progress continues to be made in reducing child malnutrition, millions of children are still stunted and wasted, and rising overweight and obesity are a concern in most parts of the world.

UN and development partners, in collaboration with representatives of various national ministries, prepared this context analysis to better understand resilience to shocks that impact food insecurity and malnutrition in South Sudan. The analysis intends to support efforts by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Cooperatives and Rural Development (MAFCRD) to develop a framework for evidence-based resilience programming in South Sudan.
