South Sudan

JSI first worked in greater Sudan with the Resources for Child Health (REACH) program, which analyzed the cost-effectiveness of immunization services in the country in the early 1990s. Since then, JSI has worked in Sudan to increase access to services surrounding reproductive and child health, and HIV/AIDS, malaria, trachoma, and other infectious disease prevention and treatment. In 2004, JSI implemented the Sudan Health Transformation Project, which was USAID's first health project in post-conflict Southern Sudan, and began the task of rebuilding the health system and improving health services delivery in 20 counties. Most of the work of the project included continuing grants to international NGOs which had been providing health services in the war-torn south. In addition, a package of essential high impact services to be provided at county level, and working with communities to increase their involvement in seeking health services were important elements of the project. All this work was conducted during the conflict-to-development period of 2004-2009.

From 2009-2012, JSI worked in Wau County in the north under the MSH-managed SHTP II project. Working intimately with the county and state health departments, JSI has been responsible for improving service delivery in 12 health centers, and improving capacity of the Ministry of Health to implement direct services in Wau County.

Through the USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, JSI works with other key development partners to support the Ministry of Health to rebuild its supply chain of essential medicines and malaria commodities. The Project has been supporting the MOH in strengthening the central medical store, including strengthening all key storage activities. JSI has also procured, imported, stored, and distributed a year’s worth of essential medicines and malaria commodities to all counties in South Sudan under the Essential Medicines Fund project.
