South Sudan Health Stats – Country Comparison

South Sudan Health StatsAid Works has recently supported the development of the next DFID business case for integrated community case management in South Sudan. While doing so we’ve collected extensive secondary health data, which we thought would be useful to share more widely. To download a summary of the data, visit our Tools & Information page

 

  • A business case is DFID’s main document for setting out the need, rationale and affordability for/of a specific programme.
  • Integrated Community Case Management (ICCM for short) is a health strategy which utilises a massive network of community workers.  In South Sudan the community volunteers provide treatment for malaria, diarrhoea, pneumonia and severe acute malnutrition (SAM), for children under five who cannot access formal health facilities.
  • The statistics in the downloadable summary describe key health indicators. All sources are available online and are referenced.
