Humanitarian context

In Sudan:

Successive economic and political crises have reinforced the context of the humanitarian crisis in Sudan, in particular pushing several million Sudanese people into poverty and worsening the situation of already precarious and vulnerable populations, including refugees and displaced persons.

According to UNOCHA, 9.3 million people need humanitarian assistance in 2020, 23% of the country’s population, compared to 5.4 million people in 2015.

The permanent political and security crisis that has reigned since the country’s independence in 1956 has accelerated the deterioration of the public services quality and their accessibility, particularly medical and educational structures.

South Kordofan:

South Kordofan, a region located in Southern Sudan, on the border with South Sudan, it’s badly affected by years of civil conflict. The causes of morbidity and mortality are multiple: measles, yellow fever, polio, diarrhea, cholera, difficult access to maternal and child health care, malnutrition, etc. Access to health services is severely restricted, only 167 of structures functioning at minimum today.

Description of the mission

Première Urgence Internationale arrived in Darfour (Sudan region) in 2004, where primary health operations began. The operations consisted of supporting health centers, and deploying mobile clinics, in close collaboration with Ministry of Health. In 2009, the NGO had to close the Darfour mission. Première Urgence Internationale was present in South Sudan from 2013 until the end of 2019, implementing health and nutrition activities in the county of Aweil North, in the state of Lol.

Première Urgence Internationale and Triangle Génération Humanitaire (TGH) have decided to work together to identify needs and develop a common multisector program.
