Paediatrics and a Cardiac Surgery Centre where we treat people coming from all across Africa.
Start of activities
Sudan is experiencing a serious economic crisis, linked to a strong inflation and the reduction of state subsidies, which has led to the doubling of bread, fuel and other basic necessities prices. The current situation, added to the difficulty in accessing essential medical products, the shortage of medical personnel and the lack of free of charge healthcare services, makes medical treatment inaccessible to a large part of the population. At the end of February 2019, a state of emergency has been declared after unrests in many parts of the country.
In June 2019, violent confrontations left people dead and injured in the streets following renewed protests across the country. Our hospitals remain open and we are doing everything possible to guarantee a high standard of care for patients.
In Sudan, we offer free care for children up to 14 years old in the Mayo and Port Sudan paediatric centers, where we also carry out a number of prevention and healthcare activities. At the request of the Federal Ministry of Health and the Red Sea State, we opened a Port Sudan Centre for the Treatment and Care of Acute Watery Diarrhoea (AWD) patients.
Sudan is also the country in which the Salam Centre is located: a cardiac surgery hospital where we have so far operated on people from over 28 Countries.
Since August 2018 we have been renovating our Paediatric Centre in Nyala, capital of the state of South Darfur, in view of the reopening.
