South Sudan

Since the country’s independence, Pact has supported South Sudan in its efforts to build peace and justice. Today, we are working to improve health in South Sudan by reducing HIV among key groups. Explore more below.

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. 

Pact has also worked in South Sudan to reach and sustain HIV epidemic control among pregnant and breastfeeding women, adolescents, infants and children, through the ACHIEVE project. A global effort, ACHIEVE works with USAID, national governments and existing response partners to identify gaps in HIV prevention and treatment programming among target populations. 

Currently, Pact is working to improve access to credible, accurate and reliable information for South Sudanese citizens by promoting the sustainability of high quality, independent radio operations. The project is part of USAID's CSM-STAND.
