The Boma Health Initiative – Successes and Opportunities in South Sudan /

In South Sudan, poor access to health services coupled with severe shortages in health workers have resulted in some of the world’s worst health indicators.

In 2017, the Ministry of Health (MoH) in South Sudan launched the Boma Health Initiative (BHI), a national scale Community Health programme.

In 2018, the Crown Agents’ led Health Pooled Fund programme saw the first-time community health was integrated into the package of facility based services and has been the driving force behind operationalising the BHI in South Sudan.
