The world’s youngest country since gaining independence in 2011, South Sudan is building normalcy after decades of devastating war that have displaced people, destroyed both physical and social infrastructure, and lost many of its health professionals. This, combined with gender inequality and misconceptions about family planning, has seriously limited both access to and use of quality reproductive health services including family planning. With over half of girls married by age 18, and uptake of modern contraception less than 2%, South Sudan has one of the highest maternal and child mortality rates in sub-Saharan Africa and globally. In 2017, the Government of South Sudan became an FP2020 commitment maker, citing family planning as critical to improving the lives of its women and girls and positioning the country on the path toward a demographic dividend.

Core Indicator Estimates

Estimates for the Core Indicators are produced annually by commitment countries through a network of country-based Track20 M&E officers housed in government institutions.
