International Medical Corps is a global, humanitarian, nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief and development programs.
Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization. Its mission is to improve the quality of life through
health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in underserved communities worldwide. By offering training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at highest risk, and with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance.
Responding to the severe lack of health providers in South Sudan, International Medical Corps through funding from UNFPA, will be implementing a training program that will help prepare competent compassionate enrolled midwives working at the health facility level. The project will contribute significantly South Sudan’s Strengthening Human Resources for Health strategy through modification of interventions at the National Health Training Institute in Kajo Keji and the National Midwifery School in Wau. The program will ultimately contribute to reducing the maternal and newborn morbidity and mortality rates and improve the health of the population of South Sudan.
