Jan 31 2023
- Flow Monitoring
In January 2023, 58,629 movements were tracked at nine Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) at the Ugandan border with Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the United Republic of Tanzania, Rwanda and South Sudan. These locations were chosen strategically as major transit points for monitoring cross-border movements after the Ministry of Health had declared an outbreak of Sudan Ebola Virus (SVD) at Mubende Regional Referral Hospital (MRRH) in Mubende district on 20 September 2022.
Most people were leaving Uganda (76%) mostly due to economic factors (40%), while one quarter (25%) of overall movements were returning to their habitual place of residence. It is important to highlight that 10 per cent of people tracked were children, while there were 900 pregnant or lactating women.
