Video: MSF provides medical and humanitarian aid to South Sudanese refugees
MSF is mainly supporting the Ministry of Health in screening for notifiable diseases, nutritional screening and measles vaccination for children from six months to 15 years. MSF has also set up a basic health post at the border point.
MSF’s emergency team report that 80 per cent of those fleeing the violence are women and children. Many have walked for long distances in intense heat, with little food or water, and are in a poor state of health when they reach the border.
