Audit of the USAID/Sudan’s Maternal and Child Health Program.
Fiscal Year: 2010
Audit Report Available: Yes
Southern Sudan has the highest maternal mortality ratio in the world, and infant mortality is also unacceptably high. This critical health problem is largely attributable to low immunization rates for preventable diseases. To better address this issue, USAID’s Sudan Health Transformation Project expanded services, and, as a result, more than 2 million people have improved access to high-impact maternal, child, and family-planning services.
Although critical health infrastructure has improved, service delivery is still substandard, particularly in remote areas. USAID/Sudan’s Maternal and Child Health Program engages local leaders and village health committees to educate and mobilize communities concerning the importance of pregnant women seeking prenatal care services and increasing the child immunization rate. Funding for this program was $12.4 million for FY 2008 and $17.9 million for FY 2009.
This audit will determine whether USAID/Sudan’s Maternal and Child Health Program is increasing access to quality maternal-child health services.
