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. </p><p>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:</p><p> Communication interfaces Logistics management Partners Accessibility Key factors that deprive children of South Sudan of </p><p>immunization</p><p>2</p></li><li><p>Steps followed during the planning process</p><p>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. </p><p>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.</p><p>County level: Informationis compiled and sorted by county.</p><p>Payam and boma level:Meeting with EPI staff and payam and boma levelCHDs from all counties.</p><p>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. </p><p>Common emergencies in the state are fighting (including tribal and inter-clan fighting), floods, hunger, disease outbreaks (measles, whooping cough, tuberculosis) and kala azar.</p><p>1 2 3</p><p>AbOUt UNIty StAte</p><p>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.</p><p>3</p></li><li><p>UNIty StAte MAP: SOUth SUdAN</p><p>Democratic Republic of the Congo</p><p>Sudan</p><p>Central African Republic South Sudan</p><p>Ethiopia</p><p>UgandaKenya</p><p>R.

They depend extensively on their cattle for their livelihoods and survival. Nomadic agro-pastoralists depend on both agriculture and cattle, needing water both for agriculture and livestock. The movements of some nomadic groups are connected to the seasons while other nomads move whenever necessary to find markets, water and grass for their cattle. Because of this lifestyle, nomads have issues related to immunization, health, gender inequality and illiteracy. It is literally impossible to gather accurate data on these issues. Some of the salient features of these groups are: Survival: Cattle herding, food, water, trading and agriculture are three key factors for the survival of mobile </p><p>populations. Meat, milk and water are their principle consumables and they sell cattle, meat and milk to buy their daily necessities. They often share cattle, milk, meat and water amongst themselves. </p><p> Movement/migration: This is the nomads way of life and livelihood, by way of heritage as well as being a coping strategy. They move for water, fertile land, security, trade and survival from drought. Sometimes they also move for treatment and immunization of their cattle. </p><p> Clan system: Obedience to clan leaders, tradition, rituals and restrictions play a very prominent part in nomads lives. Due to illiteracy, hardly anything is written and they rely rather on word of mouth. Decision-making in the clan system is very structured, and mostly done by older males. Females are allowed to make decisions related to milking, rearing of calves and selling of small items. However, they do not have a voice on broader issues. </p><p> Lifeline: Water, cattle and milk can be considered as the lifeline of mobile populations. All their decisions and thinking prioritize these three factors. Milk gives them money, survival of their babies and food for their families. Cattle give them money, food and other necessities of daily life. Water is needed for agriculture, cattle and their own survival. </p><p>NOMAdS</p><p>South Sudan has a group of people who are cattle herders, fishermen and sometimes farmers. These people move from one place to another depending on the need for food, water and suitable land. Their lifestyles, livelihoods and movement patterns are distinct from each other, and need special consideration and intervention for delivery of health and other services.</p><p>Most communication through word of mouth</p><p>Milk</p><p>Milk Cattle Agriculture</p><p>Sharing milk, meat, cattle</p><p>Water</p><p>Meat Trading SUrvIvAL</p><p>Food</p><p>Others</p><p>Meat</p><p>Milk</p><p>Lifeline for babies</p><p>One of the primary foods for family</p><p>For cattle</p><p>For crops For survival</p><p>Money</p><p>MoneyFo...</p></li></ul>
