IMA is currently investigating a cholera outbreak that claimed 11 lives in 10 days in Upper Nile State in late May. Upper Nile is one of the two states where IMA implements the World Bank-funded Rapid Results Health Project (RRHP).
IMA is also working under a nine-month grant from the US Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) to provide basic health care to people displaced by the recent conflict, which began in December 2013. IMA is supporting mobile clinics that will be phased out as populations resettle in their communities and permanent health centers are refurbished and re-staffed with help from RRHP.
The Kodok clinic — one of eight supported by the OFDA grant — is seeing more than 200 patients daily and is exceeding all project indicators.
