An Escalating Health Crisis in South Sudan
Since November 2011, MSF has been operating emergency programs in South Sudan for tens of thousands of refugees who fled violence in Sudan’s South Kordofan and Blue Nile States. MSF has field hospitals in five refugee camps in Unity and Upper Nile states in South Sudan (Batil, Doro, Jamam, Yida, and Gendrassa). However, resources in the camps are stretched extremely thin, and the humanitarian crisis is only worsening as more refugees arrive. Heavy rains have exacerbated the situation, flooding camps and leaving refugees—many of whom have already endured the journey from Sudan on foot—vulnerable to diseases like diarrhea, malaria, and cholera.

Mediante il processo omeostatico l’organismo conserva il suo equilibrio e quindi la sua salute in condizioni variabili.

Dal momento che i bisogni sono molteplici, e visto che ogni bisogno scuote l’equilibrio, il processo omeostatico è sempre in atto.
