South Sudan

Throughout the civil war and since gaining independence from Sudan in 2011, South Sudan has experienced high levels of violence and unrest. There has been mass displacement, loss of livelihoods and destruction of housing. Human rights abuses, including gender-based violence and the recruitment of children for armed groups, have been rife. The Health Cluster prioritises groups include women, young children, displaced people and people living with HIV/AIDS and TB. Services delivered include sexual violence support, cholera management and nutrition.

The information displayed here is updated in reference to the Health Cluster dashboard, in quarterly periods.
