State Ministry of Health (SMoH) officials, the U.N. World Health Organization (WHO), and other health partners are working to contain the outbreak by providing medical supplies, training health care workers, and targeting affected areas with health promotion activities.

  • During November, clashes and multiple aerial bombings reportedly killed eight people and injured at least 40 others in SPLM-N-controlled parts of the Two Areas of Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile, relief actors and the U.N. report.

  • As of December 11, nearly 115,600 South Sudanese had fled to Sudan since mid-December 2013 and an estimated 67,500 South Sudanese refugees sheltering in Sudan had received humanitarian assistance, according to the U.N.
