The overall nutrition situation in the 3rd quarter of the year remained critical and the forecast suggested further deterioration.
By Carmel Dolan, Jeremy Shoham & Marie McGrath on 20 October 2017
According to the February 2017 Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC), acute malnutrition remains a major public health emergency in South Sudan. Based on the most recent data from 23 counties, 14 of these have Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) at or above the emergency thresholds of GAM ≥15%. Based on this analysis, the IPC declared two counties (Leer and Mayandit in IPC 5- Famine) and Panyijar and Kouch into IPC 4!
This case study documents how the nutrition information systems in South Sudan, once weak and unreliable, have been transformed into a well-developed system supported by government, donors and Nutrition Cluster (NC) partners. It highlights how increased technical capacity in nutrition and information management within the Cluster Lead Agency (UNICEF) has allowed for the NC to focus on coordination. Integrating nutrition information management capacity into Ministry of Health (MoH) systems remains a work in progress.
Situation and Response Overview

Since activation of the Level-3 emergency in South Sudan, the Global Nutrition Cluster Coordination Team (GNC-CT) has been providing operational, remote and surge support to the National Nutrition Cluster. From February to August 2014, Ayadil Saparbekov, GNC Deputy Coordinator, completed three field missions to Juba to support and strengthen the cluster’s role in effectively coordinating nutrition response.
