Nyagene Jacquelina, 45, seeks treatment from an IOM nurse in Ezo, Western Equatoria, for what is believed to be advanced stage of AIDS. IOM treats primarily Sudanese IDPs in the area, but won't refuse treatment to refugees in the mobile clinic. In October 2008, thousands of Congolese fleeing violence perpetrated by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) crossed into Southern Sudan to make their way to safety at three main UNHCR settlements, Nyori in Central Equatoria, and Makpandu and Ezo in Western Equatoria. As the violence continues in DRC, CAR and Sudan, new arrivals register with UNHCR weekly. Ezo in particular, remains a security risk for refugees, internally displaced Sudanese, and the aid workers serving them.
