Fulcrum Aid has agreed to a request by the Central Equatoria State Ministry of Health to resource their School of Nursing and Midwifery in Juba, South Sudan. 

In 2008 the medical school was officially opened after extensive renovations provided by UNICEF were completed. However, lack of text books, training resources and qualified tutors meant that the refurbished class rooms, offices, library and dormitories remained empty or under-utilised until September 2013 when the staff of the school determined they would commence classes using the few resources at hand.

Fulcrum Aid has agreed to provide text books for the Enrolled Nurse and Midwife students, and then to explore the provision of library resources, training equipment and qualified tutors.

The Principal of the school, James Lotto, sends this message: "Please tell supporters in Australia that inadequacy of qualified health workers is one of our major challenges to our efforts to deliver quality health care for our poor and illiterate people in rural areas. We will be very delighted for the first supporters in Australia to start supporting this Nursing and Midwifery Training School in South Sudan."
