To help approximately three million South Sudanese by providing critical life-saving support and helping people to better cope with shocks from conflict, drought and flooding. This programme aims to save the lives of an estimated two million people who will receive at least one form of humanitarian assistance; and build the capacity of an estimated one million people to recover and cope better with shocks.

DFID’s mission is to help eradicate poverty in the world’s poorest countries. The priority objective for DFID's South Sudan department - with the international community - is to support peace, whilst recognising that prospects remain fragile and that even in a best-case scenario, continued protection of and support to the most vulnerable (particularly youth, women and children) will be essential for years to come. The focus of the DFID's South Sudan strategy is on sustaining high levels of humanitarian support and the provision of essential services, whilst looking for and supporting opportunities to embed peace. The UK Department for International Development (DFID) has appointed Crown Agents to effectively manage and deliver the ‘Health Pooled Fund 3 (HPF3)’ programme in South Sudan. HPF3 will effectively merge two current health programmes - Health Pooled Fund 2 (HPF2), which provides healthcare at health facility level, and the Integrated Community Case Management 2 (ICCM2) programme, which provides healthcare to children under-five within more remote communities. DFID South Sudan is initiating a new five year HPF3 programme (2018-2023) which will follow on from HPF2 ending in October 2018 and ICCM2 ending in December 2018. This is a multi-donor programme with existing HPF2 donors (US, Canada and Sweden) expected to continue their support. The programme impact will be an improved health and nutrition status for the population that saves lives and reduces morbidity (including maternal, infant and under-5 mortality).

UK Aid Match II - 2016-2020 is the next phase of DFID’s UK Aid Match scheme and has a budget of up to £157 million. UK Aid Match is DFID’s fund to increase UK public engagement in international development, while simultaneously reducing poverty and achieving the Global Goals in priority countries through funded civil society organisations. DFID aims to provide opportunities for the UK public to have a say in how UK aid is spent by offering to match every £1 donated by the public to a UK Aid Match charity appeal. CSOs use the match funding raised in the appeals to implement projects that improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. In the first phase of the UK Aid Match 2013 - 2016, a total of 62 grants were awarded to CSOs, working in 22 countries, and 3.6 million public donations were matched. Under the next phase of the scheme, UK Aid Match II, DFID would like to see an increase in the number and diversity of CSOs accessing UK Aid Match funding, a more diversified subsection of the public being reached by the appeals and engaged in international development, and more innovative or non-challenge fund methods being explored. The next phase of the scheme will have broader country eligibility criteria, which will include countries in the bottom 50 of the Human Development Index and countries that DFID considers to be highly or moderately fragile. In January 2018, DFID selected a MannionDaniels’ led consortium as Fund Manager for the next phase of UK Aid Match. The consortium partners are Education Development Trust, Oxford Policy Management, KIT Royal Tropical Institute and The Social Change Agency.

Funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), UK Aid Direct was established in 2014 as a successor to the Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF), which was created in 2010.

This agenda can be achieved through funding projects that encompass service delivery, economic empowerment, strengthening accountability or generating social change. As a flexible fund, UK Aid Direct is designed to be an adaptive and demand-led fund that responds to DFID priorities of:\n\n- Strengthening global peace, security and governance\n\n- Strengthening resilience and response to crisis\n\n- Promoting global prosperity\n\n- Tackling extreme poverty and helping the world’s most vulnerable\n\n- Delivering value for money
