Much of the local communities Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is supporting in Pibor area are nomadic cattle herders, migrating during the dry season in search of grazing pastures and water.

By doing so they move further away from town and locations accessible by road, leaving many people without access to medical care.
 
Over the past weeks, MSF supported the nomadic populations living in KongKong cattle camp with vaccinations, nutritional screenings and the distribution of mosquito nets.
 
Additionally, the organization has been answering to a measles outbreak in the area with the vaccination of children under the age of fifteen and the medical treatment of suspect cases at its clinic in Pibor town.
