Sudan – Health and Nutrition for the Mayo vulnerable population


Sudan – Health and Nutrition for the Mayo vulnerable population

The EMERGENCY project has its action hub in the Paediatric Centre in Mayo area where EMERGENCY not only offers free and qualified paediatric assistance, but it also provides women with Antenatal Care and promotes a preventive approach to child and maternal healthcare through health education sessions.



The EMERGENCY project aims at contributing to the improvement of the quality of life of marginalised populations in Mayo by ensuring access to free and quality healthcare services (curative and preventive medicine) to children under 14 and by increasing community participation and awareness of the population with regards to health and nutrition issues.
The overall objective of the project is to contribute in reducing maternal, neonatal and child morbidity and mortality, through free of charge, high quality health services, community participation and ownership.

Therefore, the project facilitated strong partnerships among civil society organizations (CSO and CBO) and local authorities working in the area.
Since 2011, PuntoSud developed a strong collaboration with EMERGENCY and it provided specific and dedicated services for two projects implemented in Sudan since 2011 to 2019.

During the implementation of the two projects, particular attention has been put on the following aspects:

  • Analysis of the project management, work plan and project’s outputs results;
  • Stakeholder analysis and deviations to plan analyses;
  • Qualitative survey on stakeholders and beneficiaries perception concerning project outcomes;
  • Information concerning relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, sustainability and impact of the project.
