EMERGENCY, in partnership with The Delegation of the European Union to Sudan, has completed a three-year project dedicated to expanding health services in the Mayo camp on the outskirts of Khartoum, Sudan. The project, called “Community participation to strengthen basic maternal and pediatric health services in Mayo camp”, was co-funded by the European Union and was implemented in partnership with the Khartoum Ministry of Health – Department of Voluntary Associations (DOVA) and in collaboration with the Khartoum Ministry of Health (MoH).
The results of the program exceeded expectations. Most significantly, 47 community members were trained to serve as preventive medicine village volunteers with the ability to recognize danger signs that require referral. A total number of 61,810 deprived children were treated in the Pediatric Center and 6,769 vulnerable pregnant women received antenatal care services. More than 8,400 children received visits by EMERGENCY community health promoters.
