    past week alone

Situation overview

The humanitarian response was underway to respond to at least 14,000 people affected by recent inter-communal clashes in Jonglei State’s Akobo County, with medical support and inter-agency assessments ongoing in affected areas. Separate incidents of inter-communal fighting in the tri-state area reportedly left scores of people dead, with aid organizations preparing to assess the humanitarian impact of the violence.

Efforts to curb the spread of Hepatitis E continued in Upper Nile State, where 6,000 people have been affected so far. In Unity State, preparations are ongoing to open a new refugee site, in response to growing numbers of arrivals from Sudan’s South Kordofan and to relieve pressure on the Yida settlement.

Over $56 million was allocated to emergency preparedness and response in South Sudan from the Common Humanitarian Fund on 15 February. The majority of the funding will be used to provide emergency assistance to people in highly vulnerable areas.
