HealthNet TPO’s programme in South Sudan dates from 1996. HealthNet TPO aims to contribute to improving the overall health situation and supports the strengthening of health systems to ensure the provision of quality health care in Sudan. HealthNet TPO aims to include and build the capacity of Sudanese organisations, communities and authorities.
Currently HealthNet TPO implements a health service delivery programme in Western Bahr el Ghazal (WBEG) and Northern Bahr el Ghazal (NBEG), funded by DFID/Basic Services Fund (BSF). Further, HealthNet TPO is implementing an HIV/AIDS Programme in Western Bahr el Ghazal, Northern Bahr el Ghazal, Warrap and Unity States, funded by the World Bank/Multi Donor Trust Fund (MDTF). It is also one of the four members of the Dutch Consortium for Rehabilitation (DCR) that has been awarded Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs funding for the period 2011 – 2015. The main aims of the DCR programme relate to strengthening health and community systems to ensure basic service provision with increasing involvement of civil society.
