Présentation
The FSNAU post Gu 12 technical report highlighted deteriorating nutrition and food security situation in the Jubas among the pastoral, agro-pastoral and riverine livelihoods of Juba region indicate a sustained Very Critical nutrition situation in the agropastoral and riverine populations but an improvement to a Critical phase among the pastoral. Survey findings recorded a GAM rate of 15.8% (11.8-20.7), 25.1%(22.2-28.3) and 21.1% (17.7-24.8) among the pastoral, agro pastoral and riverine populations respectively. The SAM rates reported in the three livelihood zones were 2.1% (1.0-4.4),5.8% (4.4-7.7) and 6.6% (5.0-8.7) in the pastoral, agro-pastoral and riverine livelihoods respectively.Among the riverine population of Juba, these findings indicate a Very Critical nutrition situation, an improvement from the Extreme nutrition situation reported in the Deyr ‘11/12 season. This is a significant improvement (p<0.05) in the GAM and SAM rates observed in the October ’11 survey that reported GAM and SAM rates of 34.5% (29.9-39.5) and 11.8%(9.4-14.8) respectively. The 90 day retrospective crude and under five death rates are 0.20 (0.110.42 ) and 1.16 (0.57-2.32) respectively, indicating Acceptable and Alert situations(UNICEF 2005).Among the pastoral population, a GAM rate of 15.8% (11.8-20.7) and a SAM rate of 2.1% (1.0- 4.4) is Critical, and when compared to the October ‘11 GAM and SAM rates of 27.3%(23.0-32.0) and 9.5% (7.1-12.8) respectively, illustrates an improvement from a Very Critical nutrition situation, with a significant decline in acute malnutrition rates (p<0.05). The crude and under five death rates are 0.44 (0.20-0.99) and 0.81 (0.29-2.27) respectively, indicating acceptable and alert situations. (UNICEF 2005). The agro-pastoral population reported a GAM rate of 25.1% (22.2-28.3) and SAM rate of 5.8% (4.4-7.7), indicating a sustained Very Critical nutrition situation since Deyr ‘11/12.A comparison with the previous GAM rate of 26.1% (22.4-30.1) and SAM rate of 9.1% (7.1-11.5) reported in October ‘11 indicates no significant change (p>0.05). The 90 day retrospective crude and under five death rates reported in July 2012 are 0.25 (0.07-0.88 ) and 0.85 (0.41- 1.78)respectively, indicating acceptable and alert situations(UNICEF 2005). according to the FSNAU post GU 12 report there are 81000 malnourished( MUAC<23cm) pregnant and lactating women (PLW) in jubba a reduction of 5% from the Deyr 2011 cases of 85000.Severely malnourished cases( MUAC<21cm) among the PLWs also stands at 19000.)currently morbidity among the under 5 children boys and girls in the pastoral,agro-pastoral and riverrine livelihoods stands at 31.2%,16.7% and 42.4% respectively.Diarrhea cases among the same groups 11.9%,9.6% and 8.7% respectively Nutrition data from health facilities in the Juba riverine, pastoral and agro-pastoral livelihoods all indicate high numbers (>30%) and an increasing trend of acutely malnourished children.Close monitoring of the food security and nutrition situation will be crucial in the Juba population. The population still remain highly vulnerable to shocks and the current risk factors are : reduced access to humanitarian services, high morbidity burden- reported AWD and measles outbreaks, poor access to health care services and sanitation, sub-optimal child feeding and care practices which all have a direct impact on the health and nutritional status especially families with PLWs and < 5 children boys and girls, therefore close monitoring of the situation is crucial
