  • Description:
    South Sudan continues to face a prolonged conflict, famine conditions, some of the worst health outcomes in the world, and an HIV response that lags more than a decade behind other countries in the region. CDC collaborates closely with the Ministry of Health (MOH), Global Fund, and other key partners to strengthen this fragile health system by providing resources and technical assistance in adult and pediatric HIV treatment, HIV/ TB collaborative activities, prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) for all HIV-positive pregnant and lactating women, targeted prevention programming, laboratory strengthening, blood safety, and strategic information. Essential Health Services: CDC supports HIV prevention, care, and treatment services in the highest prevalence areas of South Sudan, focusing on increasing service capacity and quality through monitoring, mentorship, and supportive supervision at all treatment sites. PEPFAR service delivery partners are leading the transition to Test and START, to achieve the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets. Health Systems Strengthening: CDC provides extensive assistance to the MOH in strengthening the health system, including opening and operationalizing the National Public Health Laboratory and National Blood Transfusion Center services, quality assurance and accreditation programs, supporting national HIV surveillance systems, and strengthening data collection, quality, and use for decision making. south-sudan-2017-2.14.2017.pdf
