SUDAN COVID-19 RELIEF
MedGlobal is distributing PPE and other critically-needed medical supplies to 8 hospitals in Sudan partnership with Sudan Association of Paediatrics (SAP).
The rapid progression of COVID-19 infection in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, and in surrounding states is exerting a huge burden on the healthcare system. The severe lack of essential medical supplies, including lack of financial, human, and other resources has contributed to increasing rates of morbidity and mortality of COVID-19 infection amongst Sudanese patients in general and health care providers in particular. Additionally, the shortage in medical supplies has led to closure of many hospitals and placed an immense workload on hospitals that remain open. MedGlobal and SAP will provide much-needed personal protective equipment (PPE) and medical supplies to eight hospitals that provide care to particularly vulnerable individuals.
The eight hospitals that MedGlobal is supporting are located across six Sudaneses states: Khartoum, Al Gezira, North Kordofan, West Kordofan, Qadarif and Sennar. We expect that almost 5,000 health care providers at these hospitals will benefit from the supplies that we distribute. The supplies will help them to protect themselves and their patients from COVID-19 infection. Over 3,000 patients treated by these healthcare providers per day will benefit as well.
