Health care and well-being

We prioritize reduction of child and maternal death through advocating and working for inclusive universal access to quality health care. Therefore, we work directly with the individuals and communities, especially women, promoting engagement and health awareness. We also collaborate with our partners to deliver at least the minimum basic health packages, build the capacity of national health personnel and local health systems, strengthen the health facilities functions, and build surge capacity for response to emergencies such as outbreaks. We strongly align to the national standards and utilize best global experiences. We have been supporting sixteen health facilities providing access to health care for 152,868 people in 18 communities in Blue Nile State (Damazin, Giassan, Kurmuk, Rosairs, Wad Elmahi, Tadamon and Baw localities). We also supported one mobile clinic providing services to six out-of-camp refugee communities. Overall, around 65,963 general consultations were provided including treatments at ADD-supported facilities. Of these, 18,418 (27%) were children under five years diagnosed and treated per the standard IMCI protocol. Also, at least 4,968 doses of vaccines were administered to children under 18 months of age. As well, more than 7,227 reproductive health consultations were provided to pregnant and lactating women. Around 1,106 deliveries in the health facilities and homes were attended by birth attendants trained by ADD.
