About South Sudan

In January 2011, the southern Sudanese voted overwhelmingly to secede, and on July 9, 2011, the Republic of South Sudan became an independent nation. As South Sudan embarks on nationhood, USAID seeks to help make the new country increasingly stable while helping the government deliver basic services to citizens, provide effective, inclusive and accountable governance, diversify the economy, and combat poverty.
