Saving lives together
See how we execute the Provision of Essential Health Services programme, in one of the most difficult contexts in the world
About the programme
Access to health care is not a luxury, it is a basic human right. Yet, too many people in South Sudan are deprived of this right and therefore deprived of dignity, life-quality and years of their lives.
In 2019, UNICEF and the World Bank started a partnership with the aim of increasing access to essential health services in the areas hardest hit by conflict which also have some of the worst health indicators in the country. The Provision of Essential Health Services Project is providing health care services including essential medicines in Upper Nile State, Jonglei State and the Greater Pibor Administrative Area.
On this page, we want to take you to where the programme is implemented, meet the people we are serving, experience the life-changing interventions and see some of the amazing results.
