“You cannot clap with one hand” is a popular African proverb that stresses the importance of collaboration and coordination to address myriad challenges to deliver to the last mile.

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) South Sudan Country office is working with international and national implementing partners to address the needs of women and girls towards achieving the 3 Zeros; zero preventable maternal deaths, zero unmet need for family planning and zero gender-based violence and harmful practices such as child marriage  by 2030. Millions of young women and girls in South Sudan have been able to be reached with services by UNFPA and partners amidst numerous challenges ranging from man-made to natural catastrophes.

Despite the successes and achievements scored so far, many issues keep the country office on its toes and solutions need to be arrived at through synergies to realize tangible benefits.

This newsletter covers a wide range of stories ranging from Humanitarian, Gender and Social inclusion, Integrated Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights, Youth and HIV as well as Population and Development.

UNFPA would like to thank its implementing partners, both national and international, donors, and the Government of the Republic of South Sudan for the immense collaboration to serve women, girls and the young people of the Republic of South Sudan.
