Italy WHO and UNOPS signed last Sept. 14th two Technical Agreements aimed at tackling malnutrition in Sudan and expanding and improving the Healthcare Services of the Kassala Health Citadel through the construction and completion of health facilities, as well as the supply of furniture and medical equipment.
WHO project funded by the Italian Government aimed at preventing and managing wasting and stunting while promoting and enhancing monitoring and surveillance systems in support to the Federal Ministry of Health Plan. The very precarious food insecurity situation requires an extensive response by the health system to address a large caseload of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and active role in halting SAM.
UNOPS project aimed at constructing and renovating the Kassala health facilities (secondary and tertiary hospitals) in order to provide holistic healthcare services for a population of over one and a half million in Kassala and nearby districts, as well as serving IDPs and refugee camps in the area.
This project aims at expanding and enhancing the healthcare services offered at the Citadel through infrastructure support, in particular through the construction and/or completion of health facilities, as well as the supply of furniture and medical equipment at the Kassala Health Citadel in three component areas:Accident & Emergency Department
- Outpatient Department
