Government Service Delivery in South Sudan

From The Official Blog of Amb. David H. Shinn Sat Nov 17 2012, 11:55:00

The Juba-based Sudd Institute, an independent research organization, published on 16 November 2012 a policy study of service delivery in South Sudan for the years 2006-2011. The author is Augustino Ting Mayai, director of research at the Sudd Institute.

The study appraises institutional data, including the government's approved budget, educational enrollments, health conditions and mortality rates in order to map how social accountability and service delivery relate to policy decisions in South Sudan. The analysis demonstrates how a less informed policy atmosphere may lead to profound social injustice in the population.
