South Sudan lags behind the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa in access to drinking water supply and sanitation services. Low levels of access to water supply, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) severely undermine health and nutrition outcomes in South Sudan. WASH-related neglected tropical diseases are widespread across the country, and the persistence of the underlying factors that intensified successive cholera outbreaks in South Sudan between 2014 and 2017 puts the country at high risk for a resurgence of the disease. In addition, lower respiratory tract infections and diarrheal disease are the second- and third-largest causes of death in South Sudan, with poor WASH being the second leading risk factor for all death and disability combined. Conflict dynamics, population movement, and climate change all influence the emergence and dispersal of many infectious disease pathogens, and the risks are exacerbated by lack of access to water supply and sanitation services, and poor-quality health services
The key drivers of need for clean water in South Sudan are: limited access to functional WASH infrastructure; increased displacements due to conflicts; and recurring flooding. canal, Ulang/Unkuel/Lony swamps area. In addition to being sources of unclean water, these areas have also been known to be places where abduction of children and women and killing of people have occurred in the past. In dry seasons, households relying on surface water sources such as swamps for their domestic water are usually affected due to drying up of open swamps.
