Description

The Sudan Integrated Mine Action Service (SIMAS) proposes creating a pool of trained and accredited medics for humanitarian needs.
SIMAS has identified a national medical instructor who is licensed by both SSDC (Southern Sudan Demining Commission) and UNMAO (United Nations Mine Action Office) to deliver required training enabling the trained personnel to apply for technical accreditation. Upon accreditation, a number of trained medics will be employed by SIMAS, while the rest will be absorbed by national Demining Commission or other NGOs.

This is a cost-effective way to achieve the objective, yet to the highest standards in mine action industry.

The objectives will be to:

  • Train national medics for humanitarian operations in South Sudan.
  • Increase effectiveness of national mine action capacities.
  • Develop South Sudanese capacity in this vital segment of demining.
  • Mobilize the trained personnel for mine clearance operations immediately.
