Health service provision in South Sudan is at chronic risk of disruption due to ongoing civil conflict. However, ICAP’s efforts with the Ministry of Health to establish crisis-responsive patient flows, contingency plans, flexible supply chains, and relationships with laboratories outside the country have made it possible for health facilities to sustain their level of care and connection for people living with HIV even through periods of increased unrest.
