Crisis in Sudan

Wracked by decades of conflict, Sudan recently split into two new countries, both of which face enormous challenges. The North-South war – which left an estimated 2 million people dead and 4 million homeless – was brought to an end with the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in January 2005.
South Sudan, which became an independent state on 9 July 2011, remains one of the poorest and least developed regions of the world, and most communities still have little access to basic services. Jane-Ann McKenna from Medicins Sans Frontieres recently returned from South Sudan and spoke with Miriam Gormally about the crisis there.
