GBV in Sudan: Rapid Review

Organisations working in Sudan and neighbouring countries report ‘surging’ numbers of GBV incidents since the conflict begun in mid-April. The current situation is highly fluid, with shifts in fighting and impacts on GBV spreading from Khartoum to neighbouring states.

On 15th April 2023, violent clashes erupted between Sudan’s military and the country’s main paramilitary force.9 Forces loyal to the ruling military regime’s two main factions are currently competing for control of the country, shattering hopes for a peaceful transition to civilian rule.10 Fighting is spreading across the country, as shown in the map below.11 More than 450 people have been killed and 4,000 injured but the actual figures are likely to be higher as are only based on deaths and injuries reported to health facilities.12 Civilians continue to flee the fighting, causing huge displacement within Sudan and across borders to the Central African Republic, Chad, Egypt, Ethiopia and South Sudan.
