Project Information

Providing healthcare services in Mongalla camp for internally displaced people in Central Equatoria State of South Sudan

Describe the need affecting community
After flooding, most of the population of Piol, the original location of the Buckeye Clinic in South Sudan, moved to a camp for Internally Displaced People (IDPs) in Mongalla. Within the camp, there is a profound need for medical assistance to prevent childhood diseases, to provide professional care for mothers and newborns, and to diagnose and treat the illnesses of people in the area, such as malaria, respiratory, and diarrheal diseases. In early 2021, the Buckeye Clinic Board in Columbus, Ohio, made a commitment to respond to the health crisis in the Mongalla IDP camp.
How will this Advance project help to address the need?

The clinic, which started treating patients in September 2021, is already treating about 200 patients a week, mostly for malaria and upper respiratory infections. Many of the patients are children under 5, and pregnant women are also receiving ante-natal and delivery care. The clinic’s trained health care workers are equipped and supplied with essential medications to do this important work.

Describe the primary goal of the project

The primary goal of BSCM is to save lives. Specifically, the clinic is staffed and equipped to prevent childhood diseases, provide professional care to mothers and newborns in childbirth, and diagnosis and treat the illnesses of people in the area, such as malaria, respiratory and diarrheal diseases.
