We continued our work to support the health system in 6 districts of the West Nile region affected by the influx of 1,000,000 South Sudanese refugees, with special focus on improving services for mothers and children and nutritional programs. We continued our efforts in the Karamoja region and Oyam district with a widespread intervention throughout the villages, health centers, and hospitals, including Matany and Aber Hospitals. We promoted community awareness, prenatal visits, attended births, and emergency transport. We also continued to focus on tuberculosis in Karamoja, seeking to improve diagnosis and treatment, especially for multidrug resistant TB. We started a five-year intervention in partnership with other NGOs active throughout the Lango region with the goal of strengthening the health system serving more than 2,000,000 people.
