Position details : 2017_11_07 SOUTH SUDAN_Supply Manager – JUBA


ALIMA is supporting one health and nutrition project in Raja and one malaria response in Aweil, and is planning one future emergency project in another region au South Sudan.

South Sudan has experienced years of multiple conflicts, involving instable government and rebel group. These military and tribal conflicts have a large humanitarian impact on the population of the country.

More than 2.3 million people – one in every five people in South Sudan – have been forced to flee their homes since the conflict began, including 1.66 million internally displaced people (with 53.4 per cent estimated to be children) and nearly 644,900 refugees in neighbouring countries. Some 185,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) have sought refuge in UN Protection of Civilians (PoC) sites, while around 90 per cent of IDPs are on the run or sheltering outside PoC sites. Due to the fluidity of displacement, it is difficult to determine the number of IDP returnees. However, humanitarian partners estimate that some 300,000 will be in need of assistance in 2016. Thousands of homes have been ruined during the fighting and many people have been displaced multiple times because of repeated attacks. Thousands of people living with HIV have seen their life-sustaining treatment interrupted without possibility of resumption due to displacement.

More than 686,200 children under age 5 estimated to be acutely malnourished, including more than 231,300 who are severely malnourished. Between 15,000 to 16,000 children estimated, recruited by armed actors in South Sudan. Over 10,000 children have been registered as unaccompanied, separated or missing. An adolescent girl in South Sudan is three times more likely to die in childbirth than complete primary school. An estimated one million children believed to be in psychosocial distress.

Mortality has been exacerbated by acute malnutrition and disease, including an unprecedented malaria outbreak and a cholera outbreak in 2015 for the second year in a row.

Hunger and malnutrition are widespread. 3.9 million People –nearly one in every three people in South Sudan – were severely food insecure and 3.6 million considered to be ‘stressed’, in September 2015. An estimated 30,000 people were facing catastrophic food insecurity (IPC Level 5) in Unity State, leading to starvation, death, and destitution. Livelihoods decimated by the conflict and economic decline, with livestock looted, killed and disease-prone and crops destroyed or planting delayed due to violence, displacement and unfavourable weather. Nearly one in every three pregnant and lactating women is malnourished.

Infrastructure losses are extensive. South Sudan is one of the most logistically challenging places in the world and has one of the most underdeveloped communications technology infrastructures. The severely under developed and under maintained roads makes 60 per cent of the country inaccessible by road during the rainy season. Prior to the conflict, healthcare was extremely difficult to access in South Sudan, with an estimated 0.15 doctors per 10,000 patients and 0.2 midwives/nurses per 10,000 people. As of September 2015, some 55 per cent of the health facilities in Unity State, Upper Nile State and Jonglei were no longer functioning. The rising cost of living and impact of the conflict have undermined people’s ability to access safe water, including due to the destruction of water points. Landmines and explosive remnants of war contaminate 110 million square metres of land.

South Sudan’s economic crisis driven by the rapidly depreciating value of the South Sudanese Pound (SSP), shortages of hard currency, global declines in oil prices, and significant dependence on imports. The price of staple foods, such as sorghum, maize and beans, are at record highs (up to 150% compared to average). The decline in oil price has crippled the Government’s social services sector and negatively affected more than 40 percent of the population. Since December 2013, an additional one million people pushed below the poverty line.
