Sydney Morning Herald: South Sudan Hospital Run by Refugees

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) runs health care facilities in the UN protection of civilians camp (PoC) in Bentiu, South Sudan. The MSF hospital in the Bentiu PoC is the only hospital for the population of the camp. It provides 24-hour emergency room care, intensive care for malnourished children, medical treatment in paediatric and adult wards, and surgical and maternity services. More than 100,000 people live in dire living conditions in the Bentiu PoC, having fled ongoing violence. The MSF staff consisted out of international staff (round the 20) and national staff ( round 500). The national staff members are people themselves affected by the violence in South Sudan and live as IDP’s in the camp.
