MSF Field Report: Decreasing Child Mortality in South Sudan 
A Crazy First Day


On Dr. Jacoby’s first day in Batil refugee camp, she didn’t even make it into the section of the clinic that constituted the therapeutic feeding center. There were so many people in need of immediate care, so she immediately began to help out the nurse that ran the outpatient department.

"There were far more sick people in Batil than you ever expect to see in one place. They were incredibly fragile, and throughout the camp there was just a massive amount of medical needs— respiratory infections, diarrhea, severe dehydration, malnutrition, and malari," recounts Dr. Jacoby on her ‘crazy first day.’
