In 2019

Despite the ongoing crisis, CUAMM has strengthened and expanded its support for the local health system, ensuring services for over one million people. We have supported 11 county health offices, 5 hospitals, 135 peripheral health facilities, and provided vaccinations, nutritional screening, and an ambulance service to the community. We responded to emergencies with vaccination campaigns following measles epidemics and special nutritional assistance actions in areas with a high number of displaced persons. In bordering counties, we helped strengthen the alert system to help prevent the possible spread of the Ebola epidemic from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. CUAMM has continued to provide basic health services in the marshlands around the port of Nyal (former Unity State) with 4 first aid posts and 1 mobile clinic, and we have completed construction on an emergency operating room.
