Southern Sudan Eager to Strengthen HR Information Systems

During January-March of 2007, the Capacity Project began assistance to strengthen human resources information systems (HRIS) in Southern Sudan. High-level officials from the Ministry of Health and all ten states attended a national HRIS stakeholder leadership meeting, which resulted in a commitment to form centralized and state-level HR leadership groups and develop a complete HRIS. As an initial step, the Project has assessed the existing health personnel registry and additional HR data and systems.
