Policy Brief: Community Health Interventions in South Sudan
Despite the conflict in South Sudan, community health programmes such as integrated community case management for communicable diseases and neglected tropical diseases have been successful. The Health Pooled Fund (HPF) is now the single largest provider of life-saving healthcare in 80 per cent of the country, supporting at least 800 health facilities. KIT, a consortium partner of the HPF, undertook a study to guide its implementation in a more resilient and sustainable manner. The findings of the study will be used by the HPF programme to enhance community engagement and to improve health outcomes across the country.
