The group emphasized in a statement that the current polls seek to obtain a complete picture of the current situation and the best ways in which citizens can remain safe if the government responds and decides to declare a nationwide lockdown.

“Our aim is to learn about household assets, support, and access to needed supplies such that families can stay safe and well during any potential virus outbreak, or in the event that the Government of South Sudan implements restrictions on citizens, as has been done in neighboring countries like Uganda and Kenya and the rest of the world,” CPA explains.

“Our aim is to share this information with Government institutions like the Ministry of Health and its partners organizations operating in South Sudan i. e. World Health Organization, UNICEF, Centers for Disease Control, Dr John Garang Infectious Disease Unit and South Sudan Youth Fight Against COVID-19 or other Civil Society Organizations to bolster the national response plan in South Sudan.”

The statement noted that the survey is geared towards helping civil society organizations collect quality data to support health workers and other front-line responders to make an informed decision while combating the spread of the virus.

“Your voluntary participation enables the Center for Peace and Advocacy to gather the best, comprehensive data to support our fellow South Sudanese during the COVID19 pandemic.”

“All responses are confidential and anonymous. This survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.”
