SOUTH SUDAN

Warrap State is one of the leading places in South Sudan when it comes to maternal mortality and infant mortality. Healthcare services are extremely rare and the patients walk sometimes for days in order to reach the hospital.

Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) runs a Primary Healt Care Centre with an O.T. (operational theatre) in an inflatable tent.  Next to the regular hospital, two additional - emergency - interventions were carried out during the time of this reportage: a nutritional program for children under 5 years old and a fistula campaign.

MSF surgeons shown on the images are Christos Christou (who became MSF president a few years later in 2019) and Jose Sanchez Giron Delgado, still active as an MSF surgeon.
