Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance

USAID is strengthening civil society and independent media, including by increasing citizens’ access to critical information on humanitarian assistance and services for conflict-affected populations, trauma healing, peace and reconciliation and non-partisan news reporting on the peace process, and supporting civil society engagement in the peace process.

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.
