This intervention will support South Sudanese Red Cross (SSRC) to contribute to prevention of COVID-19 transmission in South Sudan’s main hub, Juba. The overall goal of SSRC is to contribute to the prevention and control of COVID-19 community transmission through increased knowledge among health care workers and Red Cross volunteers; and improved preventive COVID-19 hygiene behavior by the vulnerable population. South Sudan can expect a massive impact within a matter of weeks if no effective measures are taken early in the COVID-19 outbreak, unless effective suppression and control measures are enacted in all areas with active outbreaks. The risk of further COVID-19 importation to South Sudan has been assessed to be high. Juba, South Sudan
Activities included in this response focus on trainings of volunteers on WaSH and Health, hygiene promotion, improving access to safe water and public health awareness raising.
