HIGHLIGHTS

  • Security Phase Four implemented in LRA affected area in Greater Equatoria region: As of 3 November 2005 the UN Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS) raised the security phase of parts of the Greater Equatoria region from Phase Three to Phase Four. The security phase upgrade was implemented following an increase in security incidents including the death of two Foundation Suisse de Deminage (FSD) de-miners (one international staff and the other a Sudanese team leader) on 31 October 2005.

  • Widespread hostilities and violence prevail across the Darfurs: Insecurity continued throughout the Darfurs during October and November impeding humanitarian access to populations in need and isolating the humanitarian community in Geneina.
  • CARE Funding Crisis: Funding constraints have forced CARE to cease their common cargo surface transport service and restrict operations of their NFI “Common Pipeline” (CP) transport service to an ‘emergency response’ phase. 
  • South Kordofan Yellow Fever Outbreak: On 14 November, the Ministry of Health (MoH) declared an outbreak of yellow fever in South Kordofan, in central Sudan. As at 30 November, 142 deaths of a known 556 cases had been reported. The danger that the mosquito-borne disease could spread rapidly among people who are poor, nomadic and unvaccinated, necessitated a rapid response on behalf of the UN, MoH and humanitarian community.
