South Sudan: Humanitarian Dashboard (as of 31 Aug 2017)

SITUATION OVERVIEW

In August, the number of South Sudanese seeking refuge in neighbouring countries reached the 2 million mark. Of those, 1 million are in Uganda. Fighting in the Equatorias and Upper Nile continue to displace thousands of people. According to health partners, the cholera outbreak was declining due to the multi-sectoral response in the affected areas. A mid-year review of the Humanitarian Response Plan found that the number of people in need has increased from 7.5 million to 7.6 million. Humanitarian partners will aim to provide life-saving assistance and protection to 6.2 million people by end the end of 2017, an increase from the 5.8 million people humanitarians had planned at the beginning of the year.
Humanitarian partners have already provided assistance and protection to about 4.4 million people across South Sudan. This includes: 4 million reached with food assistance; more than 2.5 million with emergency livelihoods; more than 2.1 million provided with access to clean water; nearly 714,500 assisted with vital non-food items, including blankets and mosquito nets; more than 541,600 children and pregnant and lactating women provided with emergency nutritional assistance; more than 284,600 children supported with access to education in emergencies; and more than 1.6 million children vaccinated against measles.
