Acute
Malnutrition


Acute malnutrition is widespread in Sudan, with 33 of the 90 localities (more than 30%) analysed have according to the IPC for Acute Malnutrition analysis. 

North Darfur, Red Sea, and Blue Nile States have the highest number of localities with critical and extremely critical levels of acute malnutrition; Kassala, South Darfur and White Nile States all have at least one locality in critical and/or extremely critical levels of acute malnutrition.

Inappropriate feeding practices, poor sanitation and water conditions coupled with cultural practices are attributable to these high levels of acute malnutrition and need urgent attention; in some localities diarrhoea outbreaks are also reported.

While the acute malnutrition situation is expected to improve in majority of the states in the upcoming season, the scale of the problems warrent immediate response from all actors.
