MSF receives treatment from a community health worker

Sudan

Fighting has displaced tens of thousands of people in Sudan, where we respond by providing medical care for malnutrition, diarrhoeal diseases and malaria.

At a project in Sortoni, we provide treatment via outpatient and inpatient consultations. The project also provides nutritional services and vaccinations.

At Dar Zaghawa, four of our health centres offer medical care, with a particular focus on mothers and children.

We also treat visceral leishmaniasis (also known as kala azar) in Al-Gedaref State, eastern Sudan. This parasitic disease, which is transmitted by sandflies, has a 95 per cent mortality rate if it is not treated.
