Description

Full Title: South Sudan: Malnutrition Rising as Fighting Continues in World's Newest Nation (Part 1/3)

On 9 July 2012, South Sudan celebrates its first year of independence. However, becoming the world's newest country has not brought an end to the years of armed conflict.

The latest fighting around the northern border with Sudan escalated in April. It has had a direct impact on the health of this fledgling nation after the border closed preventing food from reaching the market, and causing price hikes. Dr Georgio Monti, paediatrician for the ICRC, describes the effect on the malnourished children he treats at Malakal hospital.
