Juba Teaching Hospital (JTH), a 580-bed facility located in Juba City, is the only referral hospital in the whole country of South Sudan with an estimated population of 10.16 million. With lack of proper functioning primary health care facilities upcountry, many South Sudanese have nowhere to go to but this national referral hospital. Military and police hospitals, if any, are non-functional country wide, forcing soldiers and officers to share the limited facilities with civilians.
Juba Teaching Hospital is directly funded by the central government through the National Ministry of Health, and supported by RMF, UN agencies and other NGOs. However, with support from UN agencies and NGOs, the hospital is still not well equipped and lacking basic medical supplies and equipment as well as human resources to deliver quality healthcare services to the people. Our overarching goal is to improve the quality and sustainability of medical and surgical services provided at Juba Teaching Hospital.
