UN says poor health plagues South Sudan refugees

Published: 08.24.12, 13:16 / Israel News

UN refugee agency officials say health problems tied to poor weather and lack of sanitation are acute among 170,000 Sudanese refugees living in camps and settlements across South Sudan's Unity and Upper Nile states.


The agency's chief medical officer, Dr. Paul Spiegel, described the situation as "quite alarming" with many refugees suffering from respiratory tract infections, diarrhea and malaria, and cholera becoming a serious threat. (AP)
