            Suspected Meningitis cases in Um Dukkhun
            On 9 April, the Meningitis Task Force in Zalingei, Central Darfur State, reported that 15 suspected cases of
            meningitis were registered in Um Dukkhun between 1-12 April 2012. On 5 April, WHO provided the international
            NGO International Medical Corps (IMC) with supplies to collect samples from the suspected cases for further
            analysis. Logistics challenges related to flight cancellations to deep field locations has hindered the collection of
            the samples and dispatching them to Khartoum for further testing. The SMoH, in collaboration with WHO, is
            planning to conduct training sessions on meningitis case management targeting 80 health workers from Zalingei,
            Jebel Marra, Garsila, Um Dukkhun and Azoum in the coming weeks. A Meningitis Preparedness Plan for Central
            Darfur State is to be finalized by the health sector partners. The plan incorporates elements of the containment of
            a possible outbreak of the disease.
