Following a cessation of hostilities in 2006 and improvements in security, people across the northern region started leaving camps for transit sites and others moving to their areas of origin. By July 2009 it was estimated that more than 850,000 people-almost 80% of the population in Acholi sub region had left the camps and resettled in transit sites (Ellen Martin etal, 2009).
