Using a Systems Approach to Improve Newborn Care at the Community and Facility Level among Displaced Populations in South Sudan

The Field Guide was piloted in four displaced person camps in South Sudan from June – November 2016 with Ministry of Health engagement. It used a mixed-method case study design: it conducted focus group discussions among the community and facility-based health workers, in-depth interviews among program managers, and observations of health facility readiness. Secondary data were gathered from documents that were associated with the implementation of the intervention during our study period. It aimed to describe the key health system bottlenecks and facilitators that influence newborn health program implementation using a health systems framework.
