Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Info session - Dublin, 15 Nov
MSF in South Sudan – Delivering hope in the hospital serving 1.4 million people
Please join Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) to hear first-hand from a recently returned MSF Doctor about the acute medical and humanitarian situation in South Sudan.
Years of protracted conflict have destroyed people’s ability to meet their basic needs. The violence has displaced millions to ever more remote areas, drastically reducing their access to healthcare.
MSF runs the maternity and paediatric department at Aweil Hospital, the only hospital in an area home to 1.4 million people. The department is a place where mothers and children are cared for in a safe space in one of the most dangerous countries in the world to give birth and raise a child.
Join MSF to hear Dr Mark Sherlock speak about his time as Medical Director of the maternity & paediatric department at Aweil Hospital in South Sudan
