A MEDICAL COORDINATOR

Première Urgence Internationale

CONTEXTE

In the Republic of South Sudan (SSD), more than 2 years of armed conflict have shattered the lives of millions of people. 2014 and 2015 have been years of continued instability due to unresolved border issues (between Sudan and South Sudan) and more importantly due to the civil war between SPLM/A forces loyal to President S. Kiir and SPLA-IO loyal to the rebel leader R. Machar, former vice-president. As of beginning of 2015; at least six out of 10 states are affected by armed violence, 1.66 million people have been displaced within the country, more than 640.000 refugees have fled out of the country, 3.9 million people are severely food insecure. Among IDPs, about 180.000 people have found refuge in UNMIS PoCs. All this needs to be considered in a very young country within which virtually the entire population has experienced forced displacement at least 1 time and hence where resilience is massively jeopardized.

Northern Bahr el Ghazal (NBeG) and Warrap states (where PUI is respectively operating since Feb. 2015 and planning to start operating in spring 2016) have been and still are largely neglected by humanitarian assistance because of their peripheral situation with regards to the armed conflict. However, a deterioration of the humanitarian context is to be noted and new displacements are still an option for the coming months.
