ANNEX A: Project Plan

[This is a sample template to be used as a generic guide for preparing project proposal documents. It can be
adapted and amended as necessary. In addition to assisting UNICEF and partners with preparing proposals,
the following outline is used by the UNICEF PCA Review Committee when reviewing proposals].

Project Title:
1. Background and Rationale for the Project
An introductory narrative that refers to the causes and context on the problem including, as appropriate,
geographical, historical, and socio-political circumstances. An introduction to the plan to improve the
situation and to advance the application of rights. Refer to the UNICEF AWP (programme, project and
activity) with which this initiative is linked.
Provision of Immunization and ANC Services to Women and Children at UNMISS Tomping and Awerial
aims to address some of the tremendous healthcare needs at IDP camps in Juba and Awerial. It will focus
specifically on:
- providing EPI to children under the age of one who have not been vaccinated, or whose
vaccinations have been interrupted by the current crisis,
- offering antenatal care to pregnant women who have been displaced, and
- providing outreach to the community, specifically through supporting the ambulance service in
Awerial, one of the areas that has been hardest hit by the countrys ongoing crisis.
South Sudan, the worlds youngest and one of its poorest, most fragile countries has been in a spiraling
crisis since violence exploded in the capital on December 15 th, and rapidly spread throughout the rest of the
country. In less than one month, according to UN estimates, approximately 10,000 people have died, more
than 400,000 have been internally displaced and over 70,000 have fled to neighbouring countries.
There has been tremendous human suffering. Women and children have borne the brunt of it. Many people
have simply lost everything. This project aims to meet a small part of the needs of thousands of people who
have suddenly found themselves displaced in Awerial and Juba UNMISS Tomping. Specifically, we will
offer vaccination and ANC services and outreach, specifically for women with complicated pregnancies
UNMISS Tomping:
The situation at UNMISS Tomping in Juba is grim. In recent weeks, more than 19,000 people, primarily
women and children, have crammed into this limited space. There is severe overcrowding. There are
currently fewer than 200 latrines, with a total of just over 400 planned well below SPHERE standards,
due to a sheer lack of space. Sanitation levels are horrific and over 60 babies have been born into this
environment. There is an extremely serious risk of water and airborne diseases.
While an emergency measles campaign was conducted, over 40 cases have since been detected.
The MOH has just started offering ongoing vaccination services, however, there is just one
vaccination post for 20,000 people.
. We propose to fill that gap. We will offer ongoing
vaccinations every day for three months, alongside high-quality antenatal care.
Awerial: We will also provide vaccination and ANC in Awerial. Even before the current crisis, the people of
Awerial were living under extremely difficult circumstances. Healthcare services were poor, malnutrition and
food insecurity rates high. Awerial is located in the greater Yirol region, an area with a poverty prevalence
rate of 49 per cent, a massive lack of infrastructure and huge unemployment. Prior to this current crisis,
children under five in the area were commonly exposed to health and nutrition emergencies, due to poor
PHC service coverage, including EPI, scarce hygiene practices and cultural barriers. The regions pre-crisis
maternal mortality rate was 2,3340/100,000 with a neonatal mortality rate of 114/100,000 (GOSS, 2011)
In the past few weeks, over 84,000 internally displaced people have arrived in this area. Many of them
arrived with just the simple belongings on their backs and have been depending on the local population for

Annex A, Version 4th July 2007

virtually everything. The scale of the displacement, combined with limited local resources and incredibly
poor infrastructure have combined to produce a disaster.
An unspecified number of children have died, due to exposure. The nights are cold in Awerial, and infants
are particularly exposed. The areas limited number of boreholes are running dry by early in the morning, so
people are drinking untreated water from the Nile, exposing themselves to waterborne diseases, and
armed groups traveling by the river. The governments medicine stocks are vritually depleted. These people
have lost everything and are terribly at risk, with children under the age of one and pregnant women being
even more so.
We cant solve this crisis, however, one of the most powerful weapons organizations wield is that of
preventative healthcare.
In this regard, under this project, Magna aims to:
- Sensitize the IDP populations in UNMISS Tomping and Awerial as to the need for immunization and
ANC services.
- Provide immunization services for infants under the age of one in Tomping and Awerial;
- Provide ANC services for pregnant and lactating women in Tomping and Awerial;
- Support the referral system in Awerial.
This project will address the needs of the most vulnerable people during the most desperate part of this
crisis. After three months, the project will subsequently be reevaluated.

2. General Objective the Key Result of this Project


The general objective should relate to a clearly identified problem that the project intends to solve or
contribute to resolving. The problem should be stated in terms of beneficiaries needs, not needs of the
partner organisation. This should be one overall objective expressed in results/change language which
clearly identifies the difference that will be made by the successful implementation of this project.

The general objective of this project is to reduce the morbidity and mortality from vaccine-preventable diseases
amongst infants and pregnant women in the IDP populations of UNMISS Tomping and Awerial.

3. Immediate Objectives
These are the specific aims of the project that will contribute to achieving the result expressed in the
general objective. Using the SMART acronym, these should be expressed in results/change language.
The immediate objectives should include the expected outputs that the project will provide to the
beneficiaries. Verifiable indicators (including the source of verification) should be specified to measure
output achievement.
The immediate objectives of this project are:
Objective 1: To increase awareness of the need for immunization and ANC amongs the IDP populations in
Tomping and Awerial;
Objective 2: To immunize all infants against the most common vaccine-preventable diseases; and
Objective 3: To identify and manage all complicated pregnancies through comprehensive antenatal services
Expected outputs of this project are:

Annex A, Version 4th July 2007

1) Demand increases for emergency immunization services amongst vulnerable IDP populations
populations in Tomping and Awerial through social mobilization and advocacy to secure IPD population
is sensitized as to the need for immunization and maternal health ;
2) Morbidity and mortality is reduced amongst infants in the IDP populations of Tomping and Awerial; and
3) Morbidity and mortality is reduced amongst pregnant women in the IDP populations of Tomping and
Awerial.

- Percentage of children < 1 year (infants disaggregated by sex, location) among the IDPs who
complete the recommended schedule of immunization and are protected against vaccine preventable
diseases (to be measured through BCG, DPT1,2 and 3, OPV 1,2 and 3, measles; coverage and children
who are fully immunized before one year).
- Percentage of children of one year who receive Vitamin A;
- Percentage of pregnant women who receive tetanus vaccination;
- Percentage of pregnant women who receive ANC services;
- Percentage of health workers and volunteers who demonstrate improved skills
- Number of outreaches conducted

4. Activities
(1) Description of activities
List the activities related to achieving the results of the objectives. Brief descriptions of the activities should
be presented in logical sequence; with clear references to time frames and deadlines; and with linkages to
how the activities will achieve the objectives. Make sure planned activities can be conducted within the
timeframe and resources of the project.
We will achieve these objectives through the activities outlined below. These activities are designed to
complement the services provided by other actors to date. Under this project, we will aim to minimize mortality,
maximize resources, reduce wastage, ensure equity, and improve accountability, to the population at risk.
1) Output 1: Increased demand for emergency immunization services amongst vulnerable IDP
populations in Tomping and Awerial, through social mobilization and advocacy, in order to ensure IDP
population is sensitized about the need for immunization and maternal health;
We will accomplish this as follows:
A.1.1 Recruitment of Community Mobilizers: We will recruit and train a total of 80 community mobilizers
(20 in Tomping and 60 in Awerial). They will be responsible for providing key messages to the IDPs about the
need for immunization and ANC. The mobilization campaign will target men and women to increase their
understanding and participation in the immunization services provision. Also the main focus will be on
increasing male participation in seeking for immunization services of their children.
Strengthening the health surveillance system: Community mobilizers will also help strengthen the health
surveillance system by monitoring for outbreaks. A simple checklist will be provided to monitor any possible
outbreak or any cases within the camps and surrounding communities.
A.1.2 One-Day Training for Community Mobilizers: The community mobilizers will receive a one-day training
session. They will receive information about the advantages of vaccination, the urgent need to vaccinate
children in a congested environment, and techniques for communicating key messages. The training will be
done by the team leader.
A.1.3 Community Mobilization: Community mobilization will occur every day in both locations for three
months. There will be 20 community mobilizers in Tomping and 60 in Awerial. The community mobilizers will be
divided into teams of two and, in each site, will be overseen by a mobilization supervisor. They will deploy each
Annex A, Version 4th July 2007

day (Monday Friday) from 9 AM to 4 PM and will deliver key messages to primary caregivers, community
leaders and temporary school in Tomping and Awerial.
The mobilization supervisor will conduct assembly meetings at the beginning of each day to review any issues
from the day before and will then hold a wrap-up meeting at the end of each day. Attendance will be monitored
at all meetings.
Output 2 Morbidity and mortality from vaccine-preventable diseases is reduced amongst infants in the
IDP populations in Tomping and Awerial.
We will accomplish this as follows:
A.2.1 Recruitment and Training of Vaccinators and Midwives: A total of 70 vaccinators and ten midwives
will be recruited as follows:
- UNMISS Tomping 28 vaccinators and four midwives will be recruited and trained; and
- Awerial 42 vaccinators and six midwives will be recruited and trained.
Training: Improve the skills of health workers and volunteers. They will be trained on infection control
practices, including the use of non-touch technique, safe disposal of medical waste, the need to ensure that
vaccines are not kept longer than six hours after reconstitution, safety of injections, safe disposal of injection
material, record keeping, individual vaccination cards provision, other activities (eg. Nutritional supplements,
Vitamin A, treatment of complications, general health education). The training will be done by the team leader.
A.2.2: Establishment of Fixed and Outreach Vaccination and ANC Posts:
Fixed and mobile vaccination and ANC posts will be established and continue to run throughout the duration of
the project. All posts (fixed and mobile) will operate five days a week for three months. These fixed and mobile
posts will ensure that children under one year of age (infants) amongst IDPs are protected against six vaccines
preventable diseases, through procurement and distribution of routine EPI vaccines.
Fixed Posts: There will be a total of ten fixed Vaccination and ANC posts, as follows:
- UNMISS Tomping four fixed posts;
- Awerial six fixed posts.
Each vaccination team at a fixed post will consist of six individuals:
i)
One registrar at the entry point to register all women and children;
ii)
Two vaccinators to administer vaccinations;
iii)
One registrar at the exit point to ensure all women and children have been vaccinated and it has
been noted;
iv)
One midwife for provision of ANC services; and
v)
One security guard.
Mobile Posts: The objective of the outreach vaccination services will be to reach the hardest-to-reach people
those who are most vulnerable and in need. There will be a total of ten outreach teams (four in Tomping and six
in Awerial) This will be located within and around the camps. The camps leaders and the local leaders will help
MAGNA in identifying the outreach post locations, and they can be in the shops, markets, churches etc. Each
team will consist of three individuals two vaccinators and one registrar. When they find pregnant women,
these teams will strongly encourage the woman to seek out the ANC services provided at the fixed posts.
Provision of safety measures and environmental impact. Safety injection practices using non-touch
technique will be observed, All mixing syringes will be discarded in safety boxes supplied at all posts, vials will
be disposed into polythene bags and destroyed as per the UNICEF guidelines, and proper waste management
will be ensured.
A.2.3 Ongoing Vaccinations: Ensure that selected beneficiaries among the IDPs are protected against 6
vaccine preventable disease through procurement and distribution of additional routine EPI vaccines.

Annex A, Version 4th July 2007

Vaccinations at mobile and fixed points will continue every day for three months. At the end of this period, the
project will be reevaluated.
Daily Replenishment of Vaccines in Tomping: There is no space for cold chain in UNMISS Tomping. As a
result of this, every morning, we will pick up the vaccinations from an established point and every evening
remaining vaccinations will be returned.
Output 3: Morbidity and mortality is reduced amongst pregnant women:
We will identify and manage all complicated pregnancies within UNMISS Tomping and Awerial IDP camps as
follows:
A.3.1: Screening, assessment and registration of all pregnant and lactating women in the camps:
Pregnant and lactating women will be identified by both the community mobilizers and the midwives. Those
identified by the mobilizers will be referred to the fixed vaccination posts where the midwives will be working.
There, the womens condition will be assessed, pregnant and lactating women will be examined for any
physical conditions, as well newborns will be examined and routinely monitored for growth and any nutritional
problems.
A.3.2: Tetanus vaccinations, deworming and Vitamin A: Tetanus vaccinations, deworming tablets will be
provided to all women of reproductive age and Vitamin A will be provided to all pregnant and lactating mothers
within the camps:. This will be managed by the midwives, and will take place at the fixed vaccination and ANC
posts.
A.3.3: Distribution of Clean Delivery Kits: Clean delivery kits will be provided to all pregnant women who 28
weeks pregnant and above. MAGNA will ensure that the mothers are examined and registered so that the kits
are given to the rightful women.
A.3.4: Counseling and guidance to the pregnant and lactating women: MAGNA Midwives and other health
workers will sit closely with the mothers and discussed their current situation in detail and give them special
guidelines on their health and the health of their unborn or newborn babies. This will be in terms of nutrition,
hygiene, and psycho-social support during the time in the camp.
A.3.5 Reinforcement of Referral System in Awerial: We will provide high-quality ANC services to the most
vulnerable women, including those who may require referral and transportation to hospital. In this regard, in
Awerial, we will give support to the regions ambulance service, through providing staffing, providing
maintenance, driver incentives and fuel.
(2) Implementation strategy
Indicate how communities, especially women and children, will participate in the project ; how partner
organisations will collaborate with other actors working in proposed location; and how the results will be
sustained.
.
Our implementation strategy will focus on community mobilization and passing key messages about the
importance of vaccination and ANC to the IDPs, as well as providing both fixed and mobile vaccination and
ANC services in UNMISS Tomping and Awerial.
Implementation Strategy in Tomping:
Our implementation strategy in Tomping is as follows:
Mobilization: Our strategy will involve the daily deployment of a team of community mobilizers, a total of ten
people, divided into ten teams of two, who will circulate throughout the camp, meeting with community leaders,
families, temporary schools and other relevant entities. Their goal will be to pass key messages about the vital
importance of immunization and ANC. A Mobilization Supervisor will ensure the continued quality of their work.
The team will meet daily with their supervisor at 8 AM, and will deploy at 9. They will spend six hours a day
passing their messages to the community (with a one-hour break) and will hold a daily wrap-up session with

Annex A, Version 4th July 2007

their supervisor every day at 4 PM. At the start of the project, all community mobilizers will receive a one-day
training course, and after six weeks, will receive a one-day refresher course.
Vaccination and ANC: Our vaccination and ANC campaign will be two-pronged, using both outreach and fixed
vaccination centers. Prior to the start of vaccination, all vaccinators will receive a one-day training course,
designed to update or upgrade their skills and focused on issues such as infection control practices, safe
disposal of medical waste and the need to ensure vaccines are not kept longer than six hours after
reconstitution, amongst others. The initial training will be followed by a one-day refresher course after six
weeks.
Outreach Our four outreach teams will have three members each two vaccinators and one registrar. Their
objective will be to complement the services offered by the fixed teams, as they circulate in the camp and focus
on the most vulnerable, marginalized and hardest-to reach families who are least likely to come to the fixed
vaccination posts.
Fixed
-

- We will have four fixed vaccination points in Tomping. Each point will be staffed by six individuals
two vaccinators;
two registrars;
one midwife to provide ANC services; and
one security guard.

Vaccination /ANC will be overseen by a supervisor, and all work at Tomping will be overseen by a Team Leader,
whose responsibility will be to oversee the overall quality of the project.
Implementation Strategy at Awerial:
Our strategy for vaccination and ANC in Awerial will be similarly two-pronged. However, it will include a stronger
outreach component, due to the local conditions:
Community Mobilizers: A total of 40 mobilizers, divided into 30 teams of two people, will be responsible for
spreading the message about vaccination and ANC. They will report to a supervisor and will receive a one-day
training course on community mobilization and key messages, as well as a half-day refresher course.
Vaccination and ANC:
Fixed Vaccination Centers: We will have six fixed vaccination centers, staffed by two vaccinators, two
registrars, one midwife and one security guard. ANC services will be provided by the midwife.
Outreach: We will have eight outreach teams of three people, with two vaccinators and one registrar.
Reinforcement of referral system in Awerial: In both Tomping and Awerial, we will provide high-quality ANC
services, focused on the most vulnerable women. As these women may require transfer to hospital, in Awerial
we will also support the local ambulance for three months.
Monitoring and Evaluation:
Monitoring and evaluation will be an extremely strong component of this project. Community mobilizers,
vaccinators and midwives will receive training both at the beginning and mid-way through the project. They will
be overseen on a twice-daily basis by a supervisor, who will be responsible for holding meetings at the
beginning and end of the day. Attendance will be taken at all meetings. All teams will be required to submit
weekly and monthly reports. In the case of community mobilizers, these reports will contain details of the
number of people who have been sensitized about the value of immunization and ANC. In the case of mobile
vaccinators, they will detail how many children were vaccinated, while those at fixed posts will detail number of
children vaccinated, and number of pregnant women receiving ANC. All vaccinators will also detail any adverse
reactions reported.
Community Participation in the Project:
Annex A, Version 4th July 2007

Community participation is also important to this project. Our primary asset in the effort to secure community
participation and support for this project will be our community mobilizers who will focus on conveying key
messages about the need for vaccination and ANC. They will receive training at the start of the project in order
to sharpen their ability to talk about the advantages of vaccination and answer questions. They will
communicate the following key messages to the community:
Vaccination:
- children living in congested areas must be vaccinated quickly to prevent illness;
- measles vaccination and Vitamin A in particular protect children from dangerous diseases;
- Vitamin A helps children fight infections and malnutrition;
- If a child has a fever, cough, rash, runny nose, or red eyes for three days or more, they should see a
healthcare workers
- Children who are sick or recovering from illness are at risk of dehydration and need food and water.
ANC:
-

ANC is essential for all pregnant women;


The need for tetanus vaccination;
Education about STIs;
Danger signs in pregnancy; and
The need for an emergency plan, in case the woman has complications

Community mobilizers will pass these messages on to primary caregivers, pregnant women and will visit any
temporary schools that have been established in order to target the principals, teachers and students. In
UNMISS Tomping, they will also ensure IDPs are aware of the informative radio programs the UN is running.
Our Collaboration with Other Actors: MAGNA will work in strong collaboration with other actors in the
implementation of this project. We plan to work in conjunction with UNICEF and will actively seek to collaborate
as fully as possible with CCM, the lead NGO in Awerial, as well as ACTED, the NGO responsible for
management of Tomping. In particular in Tomping, we will ensure that all our workers are fully aware of all
safety measures being implemented by ACTED. Meanwhile, we will participate fully in all cluster meetings
related to immunization, RH, Tomping and Awerial.

6. Beneficiaries
Basic data (including the source) on the expected number of beneficiaries. This should be disaggregated
by adult/child, and male/female.
It is difficult to estimate exact numbers who will benefit from this project, due to the fluidity of the situation.
While numerous needs assessments have been done in both areas, the situation is changing daily and is likely
to continue to do so. However, we estimate the beneficiaries of this project will be as follows:
-

2,000 infants under the age of one in UNMISS Tomping;


5,000 infants under the age of one in Awerial;
1,000 pregnant or lactating women in Tomping;
3,000 pregnant or lactating women in Awerial;
84,000 IDPs in Awerial who will receive education about immunization and vaccination;
20,000 IDPs in UNMISS Tomping who will receive education about immunization and vaccination;
50 individuals who will be recruited and trained as community mobilizers and will thus gain valuable
skills;
70 vaccinators who will benefit from having their skills upgraded; and
Ten midwives who will benefit from having their skills upgraded.

7. Budget Estimations
To indicate the context in which UNICEF resources will be utilized, list summary inputs (personnel,
supplies, cash) from beneficiary, partner organisation and UNICEF. If UNICEF is not funding the entire
Project, confirm that other funding has been mobilized or secured. Include a brief narrative to justify
budget items as necessary. A detailed budget of UNICEF resources for the project is provided in Annex B.
The total budget for this project is $154,391. The detailed budget breakdown can be found in the attached
budget template. However, it includes:
-

$15,000 on monitoring and implementation visits;


$8,000 for hygiene kits and medical documentation.
$4,000 in training costs;
$84,645 in personnel costs (including midwives, community mobilizers and vaccinators).

Supply and Equipment


The supplies and equipment, including vehicles and any other means of transport, if any, to be provided by
UNICEF to the partner organization should be listed.
Under this project, we will request UNICEF to supply the following:
- Vaccines;
- Equipment for vaccination/ANC posts (vaccine carriers, cold boxes, desk, chairs, banners, ,
stethoscopes, fetoscopes, syringes, cotton, referral cards) ;
- IEC materials;
- Clean delivery kits;
- Storage at Tomping (as required).

8. Roles and Responsibilities Implementation and Monitoring


A brief description of the roles and responsibilities of the beneficiary community, the partner organisation,
and UNICEF. Specify the nature and frequency of UNICEFs monitoring. Specify names and titles of the
partner and UNICEF officers immediately responsible for the project.
The responsibilities for this project will be divided as follows:
MAGNA Children at Risk:
We will be responsible for the following in both locations:
- Ensuring the project is implemented in a timely fashion;

Annex A, Version 4th July 2007

Mobilizing funding, carrying out the training on time, conducting social mobilization, conducting
immunization five days a week for three months, cold chain, logistics and transport.
- Conducting ANC amongst pregnant women five days a week for three months;
- Reinforce outreach services and referral through support of the ambulance in Awerial and assisting the
MOH as it reassumes responsibility for this function.
We will also be responsible for all monitoring and evaluation of the project, which will be conducted on an
ongoing basis.
UNICEF Responsibilities:
UNICEF will be responsible for procuring and supplying the vaccines, injection safety materials, support,
distribution of injection safety materials, and other immunization supplies to the districts, purchase of vaccine
carrier. UNICEF will also provide technical support in planning and implementation and monitoring of activities.
UNICEF will secure a storage at Tomping if required.

9. Reporting
Indicate the schedule for both narrative and financial reports.
This project will have a strong monitoring and evaluation component, which will be reflected in its reporting.
Daily meetings will take place between the mobilizers and their supervisors and attendance will be taken at
all meetings. All mobilization and vaccination teams will be required to produce weekly and monthly reports,
which will be carefully monitored and any required changes made to the project. These reports will be
forwarded to both county health departments and UNICEF. Responsibility for the timely production of
reports, as well as their accuracy will lie with both team leaders and MAGNAs project coordinator. We will
submit a final report after three months of operation.

10. Visibility
Indicate how UNICEFs support to this project will be visible at project sites and acknowledged in public
reporting.
UNICEFs collaboration will be strongly and continually acknowledged throughout the project. Magna Children
at Risk South Sudan will ensure all mentions of UNICEF collaboration occur in-line with UNICEFs ethical and
brand guidelines, as outlined in the UNICEF Brand Toolkit. Specifically:
-

We will feature the UNICEF logo on all communications materials: The UNICEF logo will feature
alongside the MAGNA logo on all communications materials associated with this project, including
letters to any officials, and signs and banners posted at all fixed vaccination points. We will always
respect the guidelines outlined in the UNICEF Brand Toolkit for use of the UNICEF logo;

We will use the tagline Unite for Children along with the UNICEF logo. This tagline is a strong
reflection of this projects philosophy.

We will respect UNICEFs philosophy with regards to photographing program participants: Magna
shares UNICEFs philosophy that all photos should respect the dignity, privacy and personality of the
person portrayed. At the same time, we strive to ensure that all our communications materials illustrate
the reality of our participants lives.

Our community mobilizers will also encourage people to listen to UN radio program thats being directed at the
IDPs in UNMISS Tomping.

11. Risks and Assumptions


A brief narrative on the risks and assumptions that could possibly affect the successful implementation of
the project (both within and beyond the projects control).
There are a number of risks and assumptions associated with this project. They include:
Annex A, Version 4th July 2007

Risks:
Security: Ongoing poor security in the country is a risk to this project. However, at the time of writing, both
locations where this project will take place are considered to be low-risk Specifically, camp management in
Tomping is facilitated by ACTED, who has established strict security protocols, an evacuation plan with
assembly points and safe rooms for humanitarian workers. In Juba, as well as in Awerial, we will fully respect
all security protocols.
Closure of Juba-Awerial Road: The Juba-Awerial road is currently open, and UNICEF is examining that
possibility of using it. There is the risk of the road being closed due to insecurity. However, the potential impact
of this on the project is limited as the project will be staffed and managed by those within the immediate vicinity
of the camp. In addition to this, UNHAS is currently offering three times weekly helicopter flights from Juba to
Awerial (Monday-Wednesday-Friday).
Expansion of Bor Conflict: Currently, distance and the Nile are serving as a barrier between the conflict and
where IDPs are located, however, this could change. We will remain extremely flexible and the project will
move if required.
Movement of IDPs at Tomping Camp: As the conflict continues and more IDPs arrive in Tomping, the UN is
examining the possibility of moving some of them. However, this is not really a risk to this project as the
initiative will simply be relocated.
Lack of Healthcare Workers: A potential human resources issue we face with this project is a lack of
healthcare workers. We will mitigate this risk by recruiting healthcare workers amongst the IDPs and amongst
former healthcare workers in the area who may have been laid off due to the governments inability to pay. We
will also offer a one-day training course to help upgrade their skills.
Assumptions: There are a number of assumptions associated with this project:
-

We are assuming that the campaign will be accepted by the target population. We will help ensure this
by employing and training community mobilizers to educate the target population about the benefits of
immunization and through use of UNICEF IEC materials. We will ensure their acceptance continues by
providing high-quality services that are continually monitored and evaluated.
The local community will continue to accept the IDPs in Awerial: IDPs in Awerial have been very
dependent on the local community, as they have been arriving with often just the clothes on their
backs. We are assuming this acceptance will continue.
Availability of safe drinking water: We are assuming safe drinking water will be available to IDPs. This
is particularly a concern in Awerial, as boreholes have been running dry and people have been drinking
unsafe water from the Nile.
