With the support and participation of Regional Primary Health Care project staff, the Ibba County Health Department, the Health Pooled Fund Lot 23, the Office of the Ibba County Commissioner, partners and volunteers, over 140 community members received consultation, screening and treatment.
AAH South Sudan works in Ibba County supporting the government in the provision of primary health care services to all the government health facilities in the county. The goal is to increase access, use and quality of health services across all levels, particularly for women and children; to strengthen the health system under the stewardship of the County Health Departments; and to increase access to nutrition services, particularly for pregnant women and young children. We work closely with the Ministry of Health to ensure deployment and remuneration of qualified staff and provision of medical supplies. We ensure that children are vaccinated and treated, mothers receive antenatal care and that the public gets the basic package of health and nutrition services.
“With continued medical outreach and sensitization activities, the health outcomes of our communities will inevitably improve, and knowledge of available health channels will be enhanced,” concludes AAH South Sudan Head of Programmes, Richard Ofwono
