USAID is strengthening independent media to increase citizens’ access to critical information on humanitarian assistance and services for conflict-affected populations, trauma healing, peace and reconciliation and non-partisan news reporting. USAID is also supporting civil society to enable its effective engagement in the peace process as well as nationwide peace and reconciliation processes.
USAID captured footage of residents of southern Sudan voting in January's historic referendum. USAID provided holistic support to the referendum process through technical assistance, critical commodities like voter registration booklets and polling kits, civic and voter education, and domestic and international observation.
