Since South Sudan’s inception in 2012, we’ve helped rebuild health services for all.
- More than 640,000 South Sudanese learned their HIV status through comprehensive HIV care and treatment services at Jhpiego-supported facilities across the country. Over 7,000 people are actively receiving lifesaving antiretroviral therapy through Jhpiego’s programming, with Jhpiego-supported community health workers supporting lifelong adherence and ensuring patients lost to follow-up are identified and returned to care.
- Jhpiego supported the study and scale-up of postpartum hemorrhage prevention via advance distribution of misoprostol (a medicine to prevent severe bleeding after birth) for self-administration at home births, as well as clean and safe delivery at facilities, resulting in more than 31,000 women receiving treatment to prevent severe bleeding after birth.
- Jhpiego provided essential HIV services for communities displaced by conflict, through service delivery in the Protection of Civilians sites in Juba. In this community, over 10,200 individuals received an HIV test, including almost 2,100 women in antenatal care.
