Standardized Expanded Nutrition Survey (SENS) Final Report: South Sudanese Refugee in El Leri Settlements, Southt Kordofan State, Sudan - September 2018


SENS was conducted for South Sudanese refugees in settlements in South Kordofan 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), 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. The SENS was implemented by UNHCR, with technical support from the Government of Sudan's Commission for Refugees (COR), the Humanitarian Aid Commission (HAC), the State Ministry of Health, WHO, WFP, UNICEF, Care International Switzerland (CIS), Concern Worldwide and Al Manar Voluntary Organization.
