Crisis in Sudan

JAMA. 2004;292(3):323. doi:10.1001/jama.292.3.323-a

"Dire health consequences" are likely for vast numbers of people in the Darfur region of western Sudan unless the current international response to the problem is drastically expanded, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned last month (http://www.who.int/mediacentre/releases/2004/pr37/en/). More than 1.2 million people, displaced from their villages and homes by civil conflict, face malnutrition and disease outbreaks, according to the WHO.
