South Sudan — Ebola Preparedness Flow Monitoring Report (January-April 2019)
As part of IOM’s Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) preparedness activities, DTM operates Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) on the borders with Uganda (UGA), the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Central African Republic (CAR). In total, 21 FMPs were active between January and April 2019, surveying 98,799 people on arrival to South Sudan. This report complements DTM’s monthly EVD Preparedness Dashboards (January, February, March and April) by providing an insight on mobility trends to South Sudan from the three high-risk countries over the first four months of 2019.
Participation in the survey is voluntary and the data collected is only indicative of actual flows. Time trends may be driven by operational as well as contextual factors.
