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.

International Medical Corps began working in the conflict-ridden region of South Sudan since 1994, nearly 20 years before a 2011 national referendum led to the southern-most states of Sudan becoming an independent nation. Today, amidst ongoing violence, we work with the government of South Sudan to strengthen local healthcare capacity in five of the country’s 10 states and deliver health services to nearly 1.3 million South Sudanese. Through 27 health facilities in urban and rural areas, International Medical Corps provides basic healthcare and integrated services, from preventative care to emergency surgery, coupled with emergency preparedness and response interventions . We also run programs to provide nutrition services, battle gender-based violence and support mental health.

Violence against women and girls is an endemic problem in South Sudan, exacerbated by ongoing conflict and chronic displacement. International Medical Corps puts GBV prevention and response at the core of its lifesaving interventions. Our programs are tailored to support and empower women and girls who are most affected by abuse and violence, and who face particular risks during and after armed conflict and natural disaster. International Medical Corps’ priority is to strengthen core services to survivors of GBV and other vulnerable women and girls in Western Bahr el Ghazal, Upper Nile, Unity and Jonglei. Our services include quality case management using a survivor-centered approach, along with counseling and psychosocial support to enhance healing and recovery. International Medical Corps works to ensure that survivors’ holistic needs are met by providing multi-sectoral service, referring to health centers for clinical management of rape and to legal justice services based on the needs and wishes of survivors.

In addition, we run women- and girl-friendly spaces in the IDP camps in Wau and Malakal, as well as within communities in Nyal, Malakal Town and greater Wau. In these spaces, women and girls can socialize, make handicrafts and receive psychosocial support to empower them. Further, we empower members of the wider community to promote women’s equality, combatting beliefs and practices that perpetuate different forms of GBV through community sensitizations, house-to-house outreach and education sessions on how to identify and support survivors of GBV.
