South Sudan: July 2020 COVID-19 rapid needs assessment of older people
Reports and Assessments
The purpose of this rapid needs assessment (RNA) was to assess and analyse the multi-sector impacts of COVID-19 on older people, including those displaced. The POCs are comprised of internally displaced people (IDPs) and typically receive greater humanitarian support in comparison with the urban areas in Juba where host community members reside.The findings of this study showed livelihoods and income to be the third highest priority for older people. Since COVID-19, the major means of survival for older people has been from relatives, humanitarian assistance and businesses. Several of the older people have had to stop their businesses due to the restrictions, illness, and price increases in the market. Of the older people who are not working some of them have retired or they have lost their jobs and cannot find new ones.
