DISCLAIMER:This Acute Malnutrition analysis was integrated with an IPC Acute Food Insecurity analysis covering the same period. To view the related IPC Acute Food Insecurity analysis, click here. 

Acute malnutrition has worsened compared to the same period in 2016 and remains high in many parts of South Sudan. Renk, Upper Nile, Twic, Warrap  and the Greater Baggari area in Wau former counties have Extreme Critical levels of acute malnutrition while 31 counties in Lakes, NBeG, Unity, parts of Jonglei, WBeG and Eastern Equatoria, show Critical levels of acute malnutrition. The main contributing factors are the high levels food insecurity; widespread fighting, displacement; poor access to services; high morbidity; extremely poor diets; poor hygiene and sanitation. Levels of acute malnutrition are expected to improve marginally by December 2017 due to seasonal availability of local production, increased availability of fish and milk at the household level, and improved road access due to dry conditions.
