Ellis-Hadwin Health Legacy in South Sudan
Testing and adapting
In South Sudan, we are implementing interventions in two locations.
In central Aweil, we are working with a partner HARD to prevent sexual and gender based violence, increasing access to justices and essential services form survivors.
Meanwhile in Aweil north, the project is working with a partner, SPEDEP, to strengthen community and local health systems capacity for disease prevention, early warning and response.
The two different interventions have been prioritised by the respective communities following Participatory, Vulnerability, Capacity Assessments (PVCAs).
The project aims at two key outcomes:
- GBV survivors and people affected by conflict can access appropriate medical care, psychosocial and peer support within a reduced stigma environment;
- Communities are resilient to health shocks and prepared for mitigating the health impacts of displacement and conflict.
Integrating health programming
Evidence and learning
We have identified and developed a plan to carry out research and generate learning in the following areas over the next three years:
- Women’s economic empowerment and health
- The extent to which the community health framework is relevant in fragile and resource constrained contexts
- Health and resilience
