Summary

South Sudan's health infrastructure has been decimated by years of war. Providing medical care, funding clinics, and training health workers, will save lives, help these communities rebuild, and restore hope.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

One of the world's youngest countries, South Sudan is also one of the most underdeveloped: little more than 120 doctors and less than 100 registered nurses care for 8 million people. In some remote areas, patients must travel by boat for three hours to the nearest hospital. The people of South Sudan are suffering. Women face a 1 in 7 risk of dying during childbirth. New outbreaks of violence in recent months have already displaced tens of thousands of families.

How will this project solve this problem?

Medical care is scarce in South Sudan but our staff are on the frontlines ready to provide critical services. In remote areas we are often the only medical provider for hundreds of miles. Our teams will care for mothers during and after pregnancy, bring malnourished children back from the brink of starvation, and provide lifesaving medical care for families displaced by the ongoing violence.

Potential Long Term Impact

After decades of conflict, the people of South Sudan deserve the opportunity for a brighter, more hopeful future. Providing medical care will save lives and help local families rebuild their lives. Our capacity-building programs will train a new generation of South Sudanese health workers to care for their own communities for years to come.
