A Save the Children staff measures the health of a child with a MUAC arm band in Kapoeta County, South Sudan. .
4.9 million people (about 42% of the country's population) are estimated to lack access to enough food. This is projected to increase to 5.5 million people at the height of the 2017 lean season in July, that would make it the worst food security situation South Sudan has faced since its independence in 2011. One million children are suffering from acute malnutrition, more than 270,000 of whom are severely malnourished.
