Challenge

South Sudan continues to face deteriorating humanitarian conditions twelve years after independence in 2011. South Sudan enjoyed relative peace and progress until December 2013, when an internal conflict arose between the government and the opposition. The situation deteriorated further in 2016, leading to massive population displacement, especially in Jonglei State. This situation is worsened by the endemic violence in the region, conflict, accessibility constraints and public health issues.

Solution

By working jointly with the Bor Hospital and health centers in the area, we will improve the health situation of mothers, pregnant women and newborn babies, so that will impact directly in the health status of the population. We also train and empower the health professionals and improve their working conditions so that they can impact positively in the populations health in Jonglei state.

Long-Term Impact

By maintaining and improving the health system in the area, mortality and morbility will decrease, having a long term impact on the population. By training and empowering health professionals, the health of the population will benefit from this project, and the professionals will in the future continue their work .
