Résumé du poste

Contexte

In the Republic of South Sudan (SSD), more than 4 years of armed conflict have shattered the lives of millions of people. There are nearly 2 million people Internally Displaced (IDPs). Among them, about 200,000 people have found refuge in various UNMISS PoC sites (Protection of Civilians). In addition, there are nearly 2.5 million refugees in neighbouring (more than 1 million in Uganda, more than 700,000 in Sudan, and about 400,000 in Ethiopia).

About 3 out of 4 households across South Sudan are facing moderate to severe food insecurity, triggered by a weak national economy, high food and staple prices as well as insecurity. Malnutrition rates are also persistently high. Health service delivery is largely depending on NGOs; in areas with increased numbers of IDPs and insecurity, providing services remains a challenge with increased risks of epidemic prone diseases.
