Increased funds, people and supplies are critical now to prevent a major health catastrophe in Darfur.

In the Darfur region of Sudan, an area the size of France, hundreds of thousands of people are displaced and living in makeshift camps. Through a joint effort of UN agencies, non-governmental organizations and government authorities, progress has been made in providing people with more food, clean water, medicines, and improved sanitation. However, much more still needs to be done. Without urgent, intensified assistance, the people are at major risk of deadly disease, including cholera, dysentery and malaria.
