Support primary health care services for vulnerable people (women, children, IDPs, and returnees) in the Kulbus and Jebel Moon localities, West Darfur

Kulbus and Jebel Moon were heavily affected by the war and consistent population movements; the population include IDPs and returnees population from Chad. In Kulbus all PHC facilities are managed by COSV, and the only West Darfur Ministry of Health facility is the hospital located in Kulbus. The population is very vulnerable to public health threats and common diseases such as diarrhea and ARI.
In the selected catchment area of Jebel Moon (Shatan and surrounding villages, Allona and Armo, Mastriha, and Kaskis, Narmala and Hashaba) no health services are present. Over 11,000 people are recently displaced and/or returned (data OCHA 2014). According to UNHCR a total population of 20,236 people in Jebel Moon is currently 2-3 hours travelling on a donkey to the nearest health facility. This makes the local population vulnerable to health threats. Moreover, the area covered is remote and not served by other humanitarian actors.
To reduce mortality and morbidity amongst the vulnerable population of the Kulbus and Jebel Moon localities, we’ll provide integrated primary health care services targeting vulnerable people (women, children, IDPs, and returnees) and we’ll strengthen the national and local capacity of early detection, preparedness and response to emergencies and public health threats. Over 31.000 people in 18 villages will benefit from this project, reached through Primary Health Care Units or Mobile Clinics.
