Executive Director Kevin Kinsinger arrived in South Sudan on a Tuesday and immediately went to work. Together with members of the Memorial Christian Hospital staff, a complete inventory, including expiration dates, of the hospital’s pharmacy has been completed. This gives the staff a snapshot of what medications are currently on hand in the pharmacy, and is the first step in being able to order medications in a predictive fashion so that the hospital has the appropriate medications on hand when they are most likely to be needed.
Keeping track of this important information is no small task since the team has been operating in multiple locations for the last year. Helping the staff complete this inventory will also assist in ordering the appropriate medication for the re-opening of the Werkok hospital. We look forward to being able to see surgical patients and care for in-patient needs once again.
