A sanitation worker carries cleaning equipment into the inpatient department. Sanitation in MSF's cholera treatment centre in Gudele 2, Juba, is taken very seriously.
Since the South Sudanese Ministry of Health declared a cholera outbreak in Juba, the country's capital, on 15 May 2014, more than 1,306 patients have been treated for the disease, and 29 people have died as at 05 June 2014. MSF has set up a CTC in the district of Gudele 2, and two smaller CTCs in the two IDP camps in UN bases. There are several MSF Oral Rehydration points close to the affected areas of Juba, and support is provided to the MoH in the Juba Teaching Hospital.
