The MENTOR Initiative is continuing to provide emergency disease control assistance to some of the worst affected communities, and is assessing new needs on the ground.

 SOUTH SUDAN Response

team flood

The MENTOR Initiative is implementing the first integrated Emergency Control Programme of Major Vector Borne Diseases in South Sudan to support over 1 million people amongst returnees, IDPs, and surrounding host communities in conflict and flood affected areas of Warrap and Upper Nile States.

 

These northern states have been greatly affected by large population displacement due to rebel violence, inter-communal clashes, and severe flooding and access to effective health care and prevention services are minimal.

The programme integrates both prevention and case management activities to target a number of diseases prevalent in South Sudan, including malaria, dengue, rift valley and yellow fever, trachoma, Kala Azar (leishmaniasis) and Lymphatic filariasis.

In addition, over 180,000 refugees have, since June 2011, fled fighting between the Sudanese armed forces and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North (SPLM) in the Sudanese states of South Kordofan and Blue Nile. The refugees are living in poor conditions in the border regions of the northern states Unity and Upper Nile and are highly vulnerable to vector borne diseases, of which severe pose epidemic threats, including malaria and dengue fever. MENTOR is currently planning to provide emergency support to these refugees with its donor partners
