SIAPS supports its country partners by increasing access to effective pharmaceutical products and services and by strengthening pharmaceutical governance. Eliminating stock-outs, avoiding delays, and building human resources and institutional capacity are key to defeating malaria. Below are highlights of some key projects.

Malaria is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in South Sudan. Only 17% of children under five years old receive treatment within 24 hours of fever onset, and 50% of pregnant women sleep under insecticide-treated nets. SIAPS seeks to build capacity for effective coordination and pharmaceutical management of malaria control activities. More >>
