Standardized Expanded Nutrition Survey (SENS) Final Report: White Nile State South Sudanese Refugee Camps-Sudan; Khor Alwaral, Um Sangour , Al Radis 1 & 2, El Kashafa, Jouri, and Alagaya & Dabat Bosin camps - August 2018


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. The SENS was conducted jointly by UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP, WHO, State Ministry of Health (MoH), the Commission for Refugees (COR), the Humanitarian Aid Commission (HAC), the Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS) and Global Health Foundation.
