KEY DEVELOPMENTS

• Widespread flooding in Sudan had resulted in at least 24 deaths, damaged or destroyed nearly 20,000 houses, and affected approximately 100,000 people as of mid-September. In response, the Government of Sudan (GoS) and relief agencies have provided emergency shelter assistance and relief commodities to approximately 42,000 floodaffected people across eight states.

• Between August 2016 and September 2017, health actors recorded nearly 34,000 cases of acute watery diarrhea (AWD) and approximately 770 related deaths in Sudan, according to the UN World Health Organization (WHO) and the GoS. Although the weekly AWD caseload declined in recent months, AWD transmission remains ongoing across Sudan.

• The U.S. Government (USG) provided more than $254 million in humanitarian assistance for the emergency response in Sudan during FY 2017, including approximately $54 million from USAID/OFDA, more than $161 million from USAID/FFP, and nearly $39 million from State/PRM.
