World Health Organization (WHO) revealed on Tuesday that it has failed to vaccinate (162) thousands children in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile states due to difficult access to those areas, disclosing that efforts are being made by WHO, UNICEF and United Nations to vaccinate the children of the two areas, at a time the organization started partial campaign to eradicate polio by targeting vaccination of 4.8 million children under the age of five in 14 Sudanese states, including 1.1 million children in Khartoum State.
Sudanese conflict in South Kordofan and Blue Nile (2011–present) is an ongoing armed conflict in the Sudanese southern states of South Kordofan and Blue Nile between the Army of Sudan (SAF) and Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N), a northern affiliate of the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) in South Sudan. After some years of relative calm following the 2005 deal which ended the second Sudanese civil war between the Sudanese government and SPLM rebels, fighting broke out again in the lead-up to South Sudan independence on 9 July 2011, starting in South Kordofan on 5 June and spreading to the neighboring Blue Nile state in September. SPLM-N, splitting from newly-independent SPLM, took up arms against the inclusion of the two southern states in Sudan with no popular consultation and against the lack of democratic election
