South Sudan Humanitarian Emergency

Adolescent girls with UNFPA Dignity Kits.
UNFPA/Bruno Feder

Years of armed conflict and chronic underdevelopment have left over 7 million people in South Sudan in need of humanitarian assistance. Needs have been intensified by severe flooding and by COVID-19, which has strained the country’s already fragile health system. Access to antenatal and delivery care is limited; South Sudan’s maternal mortality is one of the highest in the world. UNFPA provides sexual and reproductive health services to affected populations, including in Protection of Civilian sites, and has a network of one-stop centres that provide integrated services to survivors of gender-based violence.
