SSHCO Works to Revamp Healthcare System in Jonglei State

After the formation of South Sudan’s Jonglei State in October 2015, newly appointed Gov. Philip Aguer Panyang introduced a manifesto for state reconstruction that included the goal of building a stronger healthcare infrastructure. South Sudan is combating low vaccination rates, a deadly malnutrition problem, and a 7 percent infant mortality rate. “Nearly 46 percent of children receive no vaccinations during the first 12 months of their lives,” said Jacob Atem, co-founder of the Southern Sudan Healthcare Organization (SSHCO). Gov. Aguer’s plan for combatting the Jonglei State’s poor health environment includes building hospitals in major regions and supplemental health clinics in remote regions. The final provision of the plan is to encourage medical diaspora to lend support to these new medical facilities. Only 85 South Sudanese doctors remain within the borders. In February 2016, Gov. Aguer invited SSHCO to draft a proposal detailing how the organization would meet his goals for improving the healthcare system in South Sudan’s largest state. To meet Aguer’s healthcare goals, SSHCO put forward a proposal to expand healthcare access statewide by leveraging the strengths of multiple non-profit organizations. In so doing, SSHO submitted the proposal in collaboration with the John Dau Foundation (JDF) and Partners in Compassionate Care (PICC). JDF will focus on the goal of keeping doctors in the country and encouraging medical diaspora to return to contribute their services. JDF will provide training for healthcare professionals and bring healthcare education to the masses. The organization has previously worked to recruit volunteers through mission trips and train medical workers outside Duk County. JDF has also conducted extensive background research in malnutrition and can use its research expertise for practical applications.   PICC will focus on the goal of building three new referral hospitals. PICC can provide blueprints for hospital construction as well as volunteers. The...

How South Sudan Can Fight The Global Zika Health Crisis

Travel-associated Zika virus disease cases reported: 312 (27 pregnant women, 6 sexually transmission, 1 Guillain-Barré syndrome) Locally acquired vector-borne cases reported: 0 The Zika virus has gained international attention with recent outbreaks in South America spreading to the United States. Transmitted by mosquitos, the virus is known to cause symptoms which may include: fever, rash, headache, and joint pain. Pregnant women are most at risk for adverse effects caused by the virus. Microcephaly, a neurological disorder that impairs brain development, can be fatal for infants. The growing number of cases of microcephaly in Brazil has caused increasing concern from health officials because of its link to the Zika virus. “The Zika virus has yet to become a major threat for South Sudan, but the country should not rule out the potential of globalization,” said Jacob Atem. “South Sudan does not have a precautionary plan in place, and I believe a clear plan is needed to prepare for the possibility of an outbreak.” Although South Sudan is not currently under threat of a Zika virus outbreak, the SSHCO clinic in Maar has the capacity to mitigate such risks and maintains strict procedures for addressing similar outbreaks. Clinicians can determine if an outbreak is approaching by referring to patient symptom records in advance. There currently are no treatments available for the Zika virus. Therefore, prevention is the primary method for combatting the virus. “If you prevent mosquito larvae, you are preventing the spread of many diseases,” said Jacob. The prevention of Zika will also supplement the prevention of many other mosquito-borne diseases, such as malaria, dengue, and yellow fever. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are tirelessly working to provide the necessary medical and technical expertise needed to prevent the further spread of the...
