Humanitarian situation and needs:
As of December 2017, there are 1.9 million people Internally Displaced (IDPs) out. Among IDPs, about 200,000 people have found refuge in UNMIS PoCs.
There are 2 million refugees in neighbouring countries.
More than three quarter (76 percent) of the households across the country are facing moderate to severe food insecurity, related to poor economy, high food prices and insecurity. Malnutrition rates are persistently high. Health service delivery is depending on NGOs and in areas with increased number of IDPs and insecurity it remains a challenge with increased risks to epidemic prone diseases.
Previous Northern Bahr el Ghazal (NBeG) (where PUI is operating since Feb. 2015) is largely neglected by humanitarian assistance because of their peripheral situation with regards to the armed conflict.
However, malnutrition rates have been persistently high and available health care is limited.
Our actions in the field:
PUI has been implementing different activities in Northern Bhar El Ghazal State since its arrival in the country:
PUI took over a Primary Health Care Centre (PHCC) that used to be run by MSF-Spain. Since the beginning of the activities PUI has served a high number of beneficiaries.
In 2017 alone, PUI has provided around 125,000 consultations serving beneficiaries from the whole state.
PUI is delivering a full PHC package that includes health as well as sexual and reproductive health, with a special attention on children under 15 and pregnant and lactating women.
This project is supported by ECHO.
Nutrition activities in 11 nutrition sites. PUI started with one Nutrition site in April 2015 in the PHCC and has now extended to 11 sites, the last 7 have been added in 2017. PUI is in the process of opening more nutrition sites.
The nutrition activities include treatment of acute malnutrition for children from 6 to 59 months and Pregnant and lactating women through OTP, TSFP and Stabilization Centre activities.
Community outreach activities that are intertwined in every aspect of the activities. Our network of Community Volunteers are actively involved in active malnutrition screening within the communities, referral of cases to the PHCC and PHCUs; they also deliver health and IYCF (Infant and Young Child Feeding) education sessions.
PUI aims at saving lives through an integrated approach. Therefore, in 2018 PUI also started to add an FSL program, integrating health, nutrition and FSL and targeting the most at risk populations according.
