in South sudan

Médecins Sans Frontières has more than 3,650 international and local staff in South Sudan and operates 25 projects in eight out of the ten states of South Sudan, including Unity, Upper Nile and Jonglei state, where conflict has taken some of the heaviest tolls on the population.

Since conflict erupted in December 2013, up until August 2014, MSF has done 500,000 consultations, of which 200,000 were children. The teams have assisted 12,702 deliveries and have performed 3,378 surgeries.

While malnutrition is a recurring seasonal reality in South Sudan, the current conflict has had a devastating effect on food security: from March to August, MSF treated over 14,000 children for malnutrition, with the majority of cases seen in the three affected states.
