With the support of EU Humanitarian Aid and Irish Aid, GOAL’s local healthcare unit in Abyei have immunized 934 children against measles, diphtheria and hepatitis B, helping achieve a local immunization rate of 93% in 2021. This success is the result of improved capacity of local healthcare staff and their dedication in implementing the Expanded Program of Immunization (EPI). The program is providing vital protection for children and helping to reduce the child mortality rate in this region of South Sudan.
