The World Health Organization has warned that malaria cases are on the rise
in the country.

It says so far, some 800,000 people have received treatment for the disease
within the last five months alone for malaria through static, outreach and
mobile health teams.

In a report, the WHO says an outbreak was declared in a camp for internally
displaced people in Bentiu.

It says by the 28th August, malaria outbreaks in almost all states of the
country had exceeded the Epidemic limits.

The WHO says it has supported airlifting of malaria medicines and
commodities and malnutrition kits to Northern Bahr el Ghazal, which it says
is one of the most affected areas.

It says it has also donated malaria medicines and commodities to affected
areas in other areas.
