S. Kane, M. Kok, M. Rial, A. Matere, M. Dieleman, J.E.W Broerse

South Sudan has one of the worst health and maternal health situations in the world. Across South Sudan, while maternal health services at the primary care level are not well developed, even where they exist, many women do not use them. Developing location specific understanding of what hinders women from using services is key to developing and implementing locally appropriate public health interventions.
