Restoring Vulnerable Communities' Access to Healthcare: Q1 2017

June 12, 2017 - 

During the armed conflict that broke out in Juba mid-December 2013, infrastructure that existed in Ayod was destroyed, while Pibor’s healthcare facility was vandalized during the insurgency of February 2016. Coupled with lack of funding, healthcare partners in Ayod and Pibor left these locations, increasing the vulnerability of communities in these two counties who have no access to quality, affordable healthcare services.

In September 2016, RMF entered into a partnership agreement with UNICEF to rejuvenate the primary healthcare centers in Gorwai and Pibor in order to provide quality MNCH and PMTCT services for the communities in need.
