Using livelihoods to support primary health care for South Sudanese refugees in Kiryandongo, Uganda
The research aimed to explore how income-generating activities and interventions can be used to support primary health care for South Sudanese refugees in Kiryandongo District, Uganda. Conflict in South Sudan has displaced 23 million people. 789,000 have taken refuge in Uganda, where they are allowed to work, own property and start businesses. Refugees have identified livelihoods and health care as key priorities to wellbeing. Village Health Teams (VHT) comprised of trained Community Health Workers could make the greatest contribution to both these priorities. The article provides detailed information regarding the study, its findings and recommendations.
