Support the development of primary health care in the States of Red Sea and Kassala (Sudan)

Soudan

Titre : Support the development of primary health care in the States of Red Sea and Kassala (Sudan)

Pays : Soudan

Date : Expected start date 26/11/2013

Descriptif
Despite the efforts of Sudanese Ministries of Health (both at Federal and State level) to implement the Health Sector Strategic Plan 2012-2016, resources are not sufficient and indicators (under-five mortality rate : 73‰, maternal mortality rate 730/100.000 - 2012 WHO GHO) still show relevant gaps to be covered. Lack of skilled human resources, adequate infrastructures and access to health facilities are some of the main constraints that hamper population’s capacity to access adequate health services. The 18-month initiative is in line with Italian Guideline 2013-2015 prioritizing intervention in the health sector and aims to support the two State Ministry of Health of Kassala and Red Sea in strengthening primary health care services, with a special focus on Maternal and child health through reinforcement of training institutions (Academies of Health Sciences), support to continuing education for midwifes and nurses ; improvement of health services provided at peripheral level (through rehabilitative works, supply of drugs, consumables and training on the job of health staff).
