Ten years ago, conflict broke out in the Darfur region of Sudan taking more than 300,000 lives and forcing millions to flee for safety.

The war and humanitarian crisis disrupted already fragile health care systems and prevented families from returning to their homes and livelihoods. Since 2004, International Medical Corps has worked through challenging conditions in Darfur to provide essential medical care, implement nutrition programmes, restore water delivery and sanitation systems and provide support to the Ministry of Health through health system strengthening activities. By emphasising training in health care delivery, we give communities the tools to move from relief towards self-reliance, and to rebuild their futures.
