Over half a million people have fled their homes, including 494,000 people displaced inside South Sudan and 86,100 in neighbouring countries.
Some 67,400 people are sheltered in UN bases. In Juba, up to 80 per cent of displaced people in the UN bases are women and children.
Aid agencies have so far assisted over 212,000 people, with new response activities set to begin in Lankien, Jonglei State and Nimule, Eastern Equatoria State.
Though over half of the 200,000 children targeted for vaccination against measles have been reached since 15 December, the disease remains a major health risk in Bor, Juba, and Malakal.
