AbOUt SOCIAL MAPPINGThe purpose of social mapping is to facilitate microplanning for communication for development interventions for polio campaigns and routine immunization. Communication and Public Health professionals working in the field of polio eradication and routine immunization are expected to use this document as a reference manual.
Unity State is the focus of this report. It begins with an overview of the State, including general Information and demographics. It then addresses the following social mapping components:

Steps followed during the planning process
the planning processThe social mapping process started at the grass-roots level. During the initial stage, Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) workers, social mobilizers and officials of county health departments (CHDs) collaborated in the preparation of a situation analysis, and shared community-specific detailed information available that was available to them. This data was subsequently compiled at payam, county and state level. The social mapping data was then reviewed, discussed and finalized in a meeting with EPI managers, social mobilizers, partners and UNICEF officials.
State level: Review of collectedinformation at state level by EPI managers and social mobilizers.Meeting between EPI manag-ers, state social mobilizers and UNICEF to discuss details of social maps.
County level: Informationis compiled and sorted by county.
Payam and boma level:Meeting with EPI staff and payam and boma levelCHDs from all counties.
Programmatically, Unity State is one of the most challenging states in South Sudan, primarily because of conflict and secondarily because of inaccessibility due to poor infrastructure and the swampy nature of its land. A substantial portion of its population lives in United Nations camps for the protection of civilians (PoCs), while others live in villages, and are mobile in nature. The assessment of population size, as it moves due to conflict and livelihood, is one of the most difficult programmatic challenges of this area. These movements are sometimes intercountry and sometimes interstate and intercounty, making it one of the most challenging areas in the world for polio campaigns and routine immunization.
Common emergencies in the state are fighting (including tribal and inter-clan fighting), floods, hunger, disease outbreaks (measles, whooping cough, tuberculosis) and kala azar.

AbOUt UNIty StAte
Unity State is the subject of social mapping for a variety of reasons. While Unity is one of the 10 states of South Sudan, it is better known as one of the three conflict-affected states in the country. Due to its geographic location and association with the Greater Upper Nile region, Unity is also known as Western Upper Nile. It covers an area of 38,837 sq km (14,995 sq mi) and is inhabited predominantly by two ethnic groups the Nuer and the Dinka. Its economy is primarily agricultural but it is also rich in oil resources. Southern Sudans first oil reserves were discovered in this region during the 1970s. In October 2015, South Sudans President Salva Kiir issued a decree establishing 28 states in place of the 10 constitutionally established states, and consequently Unity State has been divided into several new states.
