With the aim to improve the local health system in Sudan, the World Health Organization (WHO) in joint efforts with Sudan’s Federal Ministry of Health organized a 2-day national training of trainers (ToT) workshop in Khartoum to launch the roll out of community-based surveillance in Sudan (CBS).

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.
