Nearly 20,000 strips have been shipped to Khartoum and Juba!

KCC successfully performed its first shipment of test strips in April. Shipping  costs were very high, but customs and taxes were reasonable. This process has been refined and additional shipments are being made to Juba every month or so. KCC sent its first shipment to Khartoum on July 1st. We are not yet sure that the strips were passed through customs, but have high hopes. Test strips are urgently needed in Khartoum because medical supply chains have been severely affected by the political situation surrounding President Bashir's departure/removal from office.
