Palouge I – Model of Care – the Hospital

One of our first projects made our vision become reality – a hospital in the Upper Nil region of South Sudan that is marked by a civil war for over 50 years. A doctor in South-Sudan asked Bigent for support. The project began after the collection of extensive amounts of data about the population’s health conditions. Despite the new outbreak of the civil war, Palouge’s hospital provides health care to more than 250 patients daily.

The primary purpose of the hospital was to establish the first systematic health care service for the population in the region since half a century.
The hospital Palouge was opened one and a half years after the first visit to the site. Up until now, the hospital operates with the concepts of Bigent UG, specifically adapted for the South Sudan region. The project was sponsored by the internationally recognized Aravind eye hospitals located in India, which despite numerous free treatments were able to develop a profitable hospital concept. Their key to success: specialization and standardization of processes.

The hospital in Palouge practices a similar approach by focusing on a limited number, but frequently occurring diseases in the Upper Nil region. Currently, the hospital staff systematically examines disease patterns within a radius of 100 kilometres comprising a population of 25.000. An efficient and effective treatment of the disease patterns was made possible, thanks to the collected data and the adapted concept of the Aravind eye hospitals.
The clinic in Palouge is the first of its kind that operates and specialises in systematic treatment of the rural population in the midst of a civil war.
