Lack of Funds in Sudan-Pathway to Epidemic Outbreaks

World Health Organization (WHO) said that due to lack of funds, Sudan would face adverse health consequences. There is a reduced access to safe water// and healthcare services resulting in a possible significant rise in cases of malaria, meningitis, diarrhea diseases, acute respiratory infections and measles.

Ala Din Alwan, WHO's representative for health action in crises said that this could be prevented if the shortfall of 24 million U.S. dollars in funds for health are provided immediately. WHO said that it has developed 20 health projects for the enhancement of health of the population of Sudan. But all this would be possible only if WHO and its partners are financially supported. This would help in the reduction of suffering and save lives in Sudan. The UN health agency quoted that communicable diseases are the leading cause of death in Sudan.

Over the last six months, Sudan has experienced major outbreaks of epidemic diseases such as acute watery diarrhea and cholera, dengue, yellow fever, monkey pox and meningitis. This had a very bad effect on the already strained scenario of Sudan’s health care services. Hence Guido Sabatinelli, WHO representative in Sudan said that a shortfall or a delay in funding could compromise achievements of 2004 and 2005 and the health of millions of people could be at increased risk.
