Examining The Impact Of USAID-Funded Sudan Health Transformation Project

In this post in Management Sciences for Health’s (MSH) “Global Health Impact” blog, Erin Polich, a communications consultant with the USAID-funded Sudan Health Transformation Project (SHTP II) working in South Sudan, examines the impact of the project, which is led by MSH in partnership with the International Rescue Committee. “All project health indicators for the second phase of the [project] have shown improved performance over the past two years,” Polich writes, concluding that the Leadership Development Program utilized within SHTP II, which “encourages teams to work together to solve problems,” “is an important tool for brainstorming creative solutions to particularly difficult challenges. The improved rates of skilled attended births in South Sudan show that the Leadership Development Program can be applied to make public health goals a reality” (12/19).
