The Health Pooled Fund Phase 3 (HPF3) in South Sudan is a five-year performance-based financing multi-donor project. During year 2 implementation, it covered the Yambio and Nzara counties in Western Equatoria.

Year 2 of the HPF3 project implementation focused on:

To achieve these objectives, World Vision, in consortium with the Catholic Diocese of Tambura and Yambio (CDTY), continued to provide primary and secondary health care services through a network of 20 supported health facilities.
