Jonglei Health Sciences Institute in South Sudan


Bor, South Sudan

Project Leaders:

Dr. Anil Ninan Cherian


This project was started in 2014 to train mid-level health workers (Clinical Officers, Nurses and Midwifes) to support and improve the access and delivery of healthcare to the people of  South Sudan.  The project goal was to establish a Health Science Institute  that is accredited to the Ministry of Health, Republic of South Sudan.

In a short period of  three years the Institute has already graduated 49 students and has built a  reputation for delivering high quality competency based curriculum and for adopting  innovative teaching methods. It is the only Institute that has consistently maintained a 40% female student  ensuring a gender balance and boasts of 97% retention & course completion rates.  The Institute  is part of the National Board of Health Science Institutes and has requests from a number of  NGO’s to support them with the curriculum development.
