“MSF now supports the Al-Rasheed clinic and provides free healthcare services for people of all ages and to fill the gap to reduce illness and death in the community.” “We are now primarily seeing respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections and gastrointestinal illnesses among our patients, highlighting the basic health care needs in the area,” says Compaore.

MSF is working together with its partners to provide free basic medical and emergency care, maternal and mental health care to all patients who come to the facilities.

For seriously ill patients who require admission to hospital, a referral system has been established so that they can be transferred to facilities in Khartoum if necessary.

MSF’s work also focuses on improving access to clean water in and around the facility.

Our team is also launching a disease surveillance system in communities to keep people healthier and mitigate any future outbreaks.

MSF is also providing training to medical staff at the facility on early detection of outbreaks, as well as emergency interventions.
