Inmates in North Dafur receive medical attention

By United Nations - African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID)

EL FASHER (DARFUR), Sudan, May 30, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- More than 200 inmates in North Darfur have received medical examinations as part of a two-day medical campaign which began on 27 May.

The medical check-up, held at El Fasher's men and women prisons and juvenile home, aimed at controlling common diseases and infections often causes due to a lack of water sanitation and poor hygiene in the prisons.

The campaign was organized by the State Ministry of Health and World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), and facilitated by African Union – United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID). A similar activity was conducted last year at these facilities.
