The nutritional situation in Sudan was already grave before the outbreak of the conflict one year ago. Since then, humanitarian conditions have further deteriorated leading to massive population displacement, limited and disrupted access to basic services, disease outbreaks, and worsening food and water security. Each of these poses a major threat to the lives of millions of children under 5 years of age as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women and girls, who are the most vulnerable to wasting (acute malnutrition).

4.9 million acutely malnourished children, and pregnant and breastfeeding women in need of lifesaving nutrition interventions.
