  • Domestic violence remains most highly reported as indicated in the recently released quarterly SGBV trend analysis (46 incidents out of 69) across all camps in Upper Nile. A high number of cases remains under reported due to the limited capacity of SGBV partners and cultural traditions.

  • Polio Vaccination Campaign (round 2) completed in the four Maban refugee camps.

  • Preparatory measures are on the way for profiling/registration of IDP population in Kodok. This will be carried out jointly with humanitarian agencies bases in the location.

  • The outflow of South Sudanese from the Dinka community also continued during the third week of January. Most of the new arrivalsfled from Upper Nile, Unity and Jonglei States due to insecurity caused by the armed conflicts in those areas. In particular, people from Jonglei said they fled from fighting and insecurity in Duk and Pigi Counties. Some new arrivals also claimed scarcity of food in their areas as another reason to flee, highlighting the impossibility to undertake farming activities under an insecure and a very vulnerable situation.
