Program Constraints
  • Multiple factors confounded the 2022 nutrition response in South Sudan, including continued, recurrent floods, subnational conflicts, interference of programs resulting in program suspensions, increased frequency of looted supplies and social and economic crises. As a result, access constraints were persistent in reaching communities and ensuring appropriate nutrition programming and coverage. A total of 111 nutrition delivery points were impacted by floods and conflicts in 42 counties across eight states due to flooding or insecurity, hampering the delivery of nutrition services.
  • Lack of funding in other sectors negatively impacted the provision of comprehensive nutrition services. Specifically, Health Pooled Funds (HPF) cuts in (27%) 220 health facilities impacted 144 nutrition sites -limiting access to comprehensive health and essential drugs. In addition, reduction in logistics funding negatively affected prepositioning of supplies and last-mile delivery, and1.3 million food insecure people in over 25 counties did not have access to General Food Distribution, with the rest receiving reduced food ration of (50%) due to lack of funding.

Clusters engaged: Health, WASh, FSL, Protection and Education

Nutrition cluster made deliberate efforts in 2022 to ensure that the same target households or individuals in priority counties receive interventions and services from multiple clusters including Health, WASH, FSL, Protection and Education clusters. This was done through joint prioritization of counties with multiple deprivations, and the implementation of a comprehensive package of services aimed at addressing multiple interconnected drivers of malnutrition, reduce vulnerabilities, prevent malnutrition, and build resilience among the vulnerable people. Based on this joint effort with the different clusters, improvement was recorded in Nutrition and WASH situation in seven of the 17 priority counties.  Both Nutrition and WASH clusters will be documenting this positive trend in 2023.
