Review of NCA's Health Programme in Eastern Equatoria and Warrap States, Republic of South Sudan
The NCA’s health programme is part of a larger multi-sector programme implemented in collaboration with several church-faith partners and local organisations. The programme under review was specifically developed to improve access to and quality of care for poor and marginalised communities and quality of life for people living with or affected to HIV and AIDS. The 3-year programme works in Eastern Equatoria and Warrap states and 3 counties.The key results established for the programme were to support 31 health facilities through drug supply and training; increase HIV/AIDS awareness-raising with a specific focus on primary schools and; support church and faith-based actors in increasing their capacity to deliver basic health services. The programme has been allocated a total of SSP SSP 4 825 640. The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, bilateral cooperation between NCA South Sudan and the FCA, and the Common Humanitarian Fund have been the main sources of funding. By May 2012 the programme was more than half-way through its implementation period. NCA decided that a review was advisable in order to assess achievements and recommend future programme direction.
