Where We Work Africa South Sudan

Soon after South Sudan became an independent country, Pact began working with local partners on the ground to bolster civil society and public services here. We began in South Sudan by building access to justice through a project that educated citizens about the law and women’s rights, encouraged non-violent dispute resolution, trained paralegals to supplement the efforts of the country’s few lawyers, and operated legal aid clinics. We also built the capacity of local nonprofits to meet vital social service missions. 

Currently, Pact is working in South Sudan to reach and sustain HIV epidemic control among pregnant and breastfeeding women, adolescents, infants and children. The ACHIEVE project is a global effort that includes programming in South Sudan. ACHIEVE works with USAID, national governments and existing response partners to identify gaps in HIV prevention and treatment programming among target populations. Using best practices and expertise along with innovations, the project is addressing critical gaps to meet country-specific epidemic control goals.
