Innovation Description

Inequities in health care system in South Sudan created uncertainties in access and use of health care services for hospital births and positively promoted home births. Lack of available Safe Delivery Kit (SDK) for home births is increasing newborn cord infections and deaths in the early days of life. Despite WHO recommendations of use of chlorohexidine (CHX) in home births where mortality is high, CHX for cord care has not been introduced and no intervention has been carried out in South Sudan
