World Health Day – how to sustain the Catholic Health Training Institute


Today it’s the World Health Day and the World Health Organization will observe its 75th anniversary.

This year the Campaign title is Health for all, to sensibilize the attention of people on the importance to offer health assistance to all, without any distinction of race, religion, gender, economic status.

For this reason, the Catholic Health Training Institute (CHTI) in Wau, trains young South Sudanese men and women to be nurses and midwives. They will return to their communities and help build a more just and peaceful society through their compassion and care for the sick.

Students at CHTI come from all over South Sudan. They live in community, which is a helpful preparation for life after training. In fact, CHTI conducts annual workshops on topics that include: Interpersonal Relationships, Peaceful Conflict Resolution and Peaceful Coexistence, Building a Community Together, and Trauma Healing.

In South Sudanese society, the lives of many people and communities depend on women, who are important potential change-makers. CHTI encourages women to enrol in its courses to become qualified health professionals, bringing lasting change to individuals, families and the entire South Sudanese society. Currently more than 38% of the students enrolled at CHTI are women, but it is hoped that this percentage will continue to grow.

To reach these extraordinary goals, we need your financial support. So please make a donation for CHTI
