MAGNA operates its regular mobile health services in the region of South Sudan called Terekaka. The project is trying to solve acute shortage of health services and in some cases its complete absence in remote communities of South Sudan.

Project activities of mobile health service include providing of basic health care, prenatal care, treatment of tropical diseases, particularly malaria and immunization of children.
South Sudan is one of the poorest parts of the world. The population density is, except a few exceptions, very low. In terms of health care, this is a serious problem, especially in providing of medical staff as well as centers and facilities. Most socio-economic and health indicators are below the level which reaches the rest of Sudan.
