Sudan Health Assistance and Response to Emergencies (SHARE) (P504629)

The Sudan SHARE Project aims to the provision of basic health and essential nutrition services for the benefit of the population of the Sudan and to sustain the core public health functions. UNICEF will focus on the provision of primary health care services in component 1.1 of the SHARE project. Provision of services in primary health care facilities and at community level under component 1.1 in the project will be based on the minimum services package. Primary health care is the first contact care that is accessible, acceptable, equitable, comprehensive and of acceptable quality and is fundamental towards the attainment of universal health coverage.   PHC focuses on preventive and promotive health programs such as immunization, maternal and child health, health education, and nutrition and serves as a referral base for community and outreach teams. Services will be delivered through various modalities namely fixed health facilities, outreaches, mobile teams, campaigns and community-based health workers and a minimum service package for each level has been developed. This Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP) outlines the program for stakeholder engagement throughout the Project cycle. It defines policy requirements regarding stakeholder engagements, lists preliminary stakeholder engagements that have already been undertaken, provides a stakeholder analysis of all relevant project-affected parties, including members of vulnerable groups, and lays out the means of dissemination of information to different parties as well as means and ways to continue to consult different stakeholder groups throughout the Project cycle. It also includes a Grievance Redress Mechanism (GRM), by which people affected through project-related activities can bring their grievances and concerns to project management attention, and which describes how those grievances and concerns will be considered and addressed. Furthermore, it contains a supervision and monitoring plan for the implementation of the SEP.
