South Sudan, the world’s youngest country, celebrated its independence in 2011. The hope for a peaceful future brought by independence was not to last, however. In December 2013, violent confrontations between government and opposition forces led to a brutal civil war that is still raging. Since then, over 4 million South Sudanese people have been forced to flee their homes, and almost half of the country's population does not have enough to eat. This leads to a high risk of infectious diseases such as cholera and measles.
The years-long conflict has seen the inadequate infrastructure which was available before completely collapse, making many regions inaccessible for humanitarian aid. Up to 2.4 million children are also out of school.
