Présentation
Integrated data analysis from nutrition assessments conducted in Juba regions in December 2010, in addition to health and feeding facilities’ information shows a significant deterioration of the nutrition situation to Very Critical among the populations in the three livelihoods in Juba regions. The high levels of acute malnutrition is linked to food security related factors including poor crop and livestock production, high cereal prices, and low terms of trade. High morbidity continues to be a major risk factor to acute malnutrition. The situation in Juba is worsened by withdrawal of international humanitarian organizations in the area providing health and nutrition services due to the prevailing civil insecurity in the area. In addition, chronic poor child care and feeding practices, inadequate safe water and sanitation facilities as well as limited access to health services, are other important risk factors influencing the acute malnutrition levels in the targeted areas. In short term, urgent interventions to rehabilitate acutely malnourished children, and boost food access are required. This intervention is intended to improve the nutrition status of children less than five years, pregnant women and lactating mothers moreover.
