Real Medicine Foundation Spearheads Efforts
To End Suffering in Sudan

Turmoil, violence and corruption are currently rocking Southern Sudan.  Tensions surrounding disarmament initiatives and criminality in the government have resulted in increased bloodshed among civilians, making it difficult for humanitarian groups to provide aid. 

The need for medical care is ever-present; however, the largest component of the healthcare workforce nurses and midwives is virtually nonexistent. 

With Southern Sudan having the highest maternal and infant mortality rate in the world, the Real Medicine Foundation alongside the Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS), United Nations Population Fund, St. Mary's Hospital - Isle of Wight UK, and the World Children's Fund, is spearheading efforts to create a college of nursing and midwifery at the Teaching Hospital in Juba, the country's capital, to prevent this problem from continuing.

The Los Angeles-based charity organization was created in May 2005 by Dr. Martina Fuchs as a result of her experience helping children and families in Sri Lanka following the nation's catastrophic 2004 tsunami. Real Medicine provides people around the globe with aid during emergency situations as well as on-going relief in areas affected by disaster, poverty, and war.  Currently, the organization is operating in over a dozen countries worldwide. 

Accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and Juba University, the nursing/midwifery college will be the first of its kind.  Serving a country population of 9.6 million, it will function like any typical college with an applicant admissions process, an approved curriculum, a student library, cutting edge laboratories and facilities for room and board. The three year diploma program will be taught by qualified local instructors and tutors.  During the term, students will serve as staff at outlying primary heath care clinics in Juba's Munaki, Nyakuron, Kator districts.  The estimated population to benefit from this program -- over 500,000.  The school will open officially in October 2009.
