JIPUs receive medical aid

UNDP handing over medical items to JIPUs in Abyei

To ensure the good health of Joint Integrated Police Units (JIPUs) officers and to enhance policing services and access to justice, the Support to the Abyei Civil Administration project provided JIPUs with medical kits including antibiotics, painkillers, syringes and needles, bandages, and gauzes.

Procured by UNDP and distributed by UN Police, the medical aid was funded by the Netherlands and Norway through a UNDP supported project in Abyei.

Since August 2008, the project has supported the training of 324 JIPUs’ officers on democratic policing, human rights, the Sudan Police Act, crime scene investigation, and gender and Internally Displaced Persons issues.

In a continued effort to improve the working environment of JIPUs, the project will also establish three police stations and provide temporary accommodation for the officers.

As of April, the total number of JIPUs officers has reached 324, with 168 policemen from the Government of Sudan Police and 156 from the South Sudan Police Service.

In accordance with the Abyei Road Map signed on June 8 2008, JIPUs are responsible for restoring the rule of law and ensuring the safe and secure return of Internally Displaced Persons to Abyei
