After completing the security screening and Disarmament stage, Ex-combatants and women associated with armed forces will proceed to Demobilization.

During this stage, formal demobilization from the army occurs and Ex-combatants and women associated with armed forces are issued with a demobilization certificate.


Thereafter, they are photographed and fingerprinted in order to produce a unique biometric DDR ID card. They are then issued with this ID in addition to vouchers for the Non-Food Item (NFI) package, Reinsertion Grant and food support rations.


Medical Screening

All Ex-Combatants during demobilization receive a full medical screening in order to diagnose and address treatable illnesses.

The screening includes the opportunity for Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) for HIV/AIDS, for those who wish to ascertain their HIV status.

The medical screening will also identify those Ex-combatants and women associated with armed forces suffering from physical or other disabilities. In Southern Sudan, the screening is carried out by members of the SPLA medical corps, with additional support from UN medical personnel.
