Project Summary

After years of civil war, South Sudan faces the tremendous costs of rehabilitating health-related services and reconstructing health infrastructure. As Principal Recipient for Global Fund grants in South Sudan, UNDP has administered six rounds of funding since 2004, delivering an average of US $25 million per year. A grant for health systems strengthening financed the development of a skilled health workforce, increased access to safe and effective drugs, and improved health information systems, laboratories, blood banks, antenatal services, and community-level outreach. The TB grant supported human resource development in clinical TB management, microscopy, and monitoring and evaluation, and provides 65 TB facilities in the country with medications, laboratory equipment, and other medical supplies. UNDP also managed a Global Fund malaria grant, which focused on preventing the disease among women of child-bearing age and children under age 5.
