South Sudanese refugees in Uganda have run out of medicine due to the high influx of people from the three-month-old conflict.This was revealed by Medical charity Medicine sans Frontier (MSF) on Tuesday.

The France-base NGO said its staff numbers are insufficient to provide health care to the fast-growing camp in the Adjumani district of Uganda.

The NGO is providing antenatal care and maternity services for South Sudanese refugees to help the thousands of people who have crossed into Uganda since the conflict started in South Sudan in mid-December.

Jasper Adotus a nurse supervisor for MSF-France in the Adjumani district told Sudan Tribune that lack of staff had made their work difficult.
