Sammanfattning

The Sudan 2023 Humanitarian Response Plan was revised in May, 2023, due to the escalating violence in the country. This revision increased the scale of assistance and protection activities and suspended the funding allocated for access to livelihood, access to basic services, and for the implementation of resilience solutions. We call to rethink Sudan's current humanitarian response through a pro-resilience and people-centred approach. A pro-resilience approach prioritises investments in national systems and institutions capable of delivering aid and anticipates, prevents, mitigates, and manages imminent and simultaneous shocks. A people-centred humanitarian response involves meaningful engagement of communities and collaborations with civil society organisations, which continue to be the key responders to the ongoing conflict in Sudan. Finally, we propose approaches to effectively operationalise health system resilience to enhance immediate and long-term health outcomes.
