Challenge

One of the world's youngest countries, South Sudan is also one of the most underdeveloped: some 180 doctors and 1,800 registered nurses care for 12 million people. The country also faces one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world with estimates at 789 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births. Moreover, outbreaks of violence in recent months have already displaced tens of thousands of families.

Solution

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. 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.

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.
