PUI is assisting around 5 million people in 20 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.

 

PUI’s strategy/position in the country

Première Urgence Internationale was born in 2011 by the merging of Aide Médicale Internationale (AMI) and Première Urgence (PU). AMI was founded in 1979 to respond to humanitarian needs in Afghanistan, conducting health activates and supporting people affected by conflict and displacement. In Sudan, AMI had been active in Darfur from 2004 to 2009 conducting primary health activities in health facilities and through mobile health clinics. Since then, PUI has intervened in the region in Chad, the Central African Republic, Libya and South Sudan (until 2019). PUI implements projects through an integrated approach; to identify, understand and attempt to respond to the integrity of people’s needs affected by a crisis. The objective is to target priority actions, stabilize and improve the situation of the most vulnerable groups, in coordination and cooperation with all stakeholders and humanitarian actors.
