Challenge

On April 15, conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) erupted. More than 450 deaths and more than 4,000 injuries have been recorded since the violence began. Current estimates from UNHCR indicate that more than 21,000 refugees have left the country since this conflict began, but those numbers are expected to escalate quickly.

Solution

To respond to the crisis, International Medical Corps is prioritizing the safety and security of staff and the continuity of essential services in Sudan, while scaling up activities and pre-positioning critically needed supplies in CAR and South Sudan to support refugees fleeing the violence. International Medical Corps has been operating in Sudan since 2004, providing critical health, nutrition, mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS), protection, and water, sanitation and hygiene.

Long-Term Impact

International Medical Corps has been operating in Sudan since 2004. Supporting more than 80 medical facilities before the recent escalation in violence, International Medical Corps understands the challenges of the Sudanese healthcare system well, and will work hand in glove with the community to make sure people have access to the services they need. We also have trained hundreds of Sudanese healthcare professionals, which will benefit communities long after we are gone.
