Sudan

Description

Peace between Khartoum and the SPLA (Sudan’s People Liberation Army) in the south of Sudan has brought few benefits to this area. There are no roads, cattle and wife-stealing are rife, and famine is a major issue. Civil conflict has been a barrier to development, including the provision of the most basic services.

In this forbidding environment, DWB (Doctors Without Borders) operates a small hospital in Marial Lou catering to the needs of 300,000 people. The biggest challenge here is operating feeding centres with only a third of the food aid that the World Food Program assesses this region requires. Doctors have noticed a rise in inter-tribal conflict due to food shortages and competition for pasture as main causes.
