Sudan undernutrition rates are among the highest globally, ranking number thirteen, and is 94th out of 107 countries ranked in the Global Hunger Index with a score of 27.2 (Global Hunger Index 2020). Unfortunately, the rates of undernutrition have deteriorated over the last thirty years with underweight increasing from 20 percent to 28 percent and stunting from 32 percent to 36 percent between 1987 and 2018 respectively and the global wasting rate reaching 13.6%. Moreover, undernutrition among mothers is high at 8.6 percent, perpetuating the inter-generational cycle of undernutrition. Micronutrient deficiencies are also widespread with 48.1 percent of children under 5 and 29.7 percent of women of reproductive age affected by Anemia while 57.8% of children suffer from vitamin A deficiency. Close to half (47%) of Sudan’s population lives below the poverty line. The country hosts one of the largest refugee populations in Africa at 1.2 million in addition to that additional 2.8 million IDPs. The humanitarian, political and security situation in Sudan continues to remain fluid. As such, Sudan will likely face many of the same challenges–possibly on a larger scale. The increased health needs driven by COVID-19 infections has created an additional burden on the already exhausted health system, further reducing available services. loss of agricultural production and household income, adding to the persistent macroeconomic crisis which significantly be affecting people access to food and will likely double the number of people facing acute hunger in Sudan to more than 18 million people by September2022.
