The humanitarian crisis in South Sudan is deeply concerning and at a scale that cannot be met by individual donors. We remain a leading donor in South Sudan. Our strategic ODA priorities are: global health security, girls' education, humanitarian preparedness and response, open societies, and conflict resolution. This year HMG will: help 400,000 girls to access education and improve the learning environment for all South Sudanese children; provide life-saving access to quality health services across 8 states in South Sudan; and reach an estimated 2 million people with at least one form of humanitarian assistance.
