In partnership with the new Republic of South Sudan, a multimodal needs assessment was conducted through purposive sampling, involving key informant interviews, focus group discussions, provider knowledge assessments and facility surveys. Data were analyzed using traditional qualitative techniques and compared with existing training programmes and curricula. Significant consensus emerged regarding the need for greater capacity among previously untrained FHWs. A maternal, newborn and child health training package was developed that included: (1) a participatory training course taught through a ‘training of trainers’ approach; (2) nine different pictorial action-based checklists covering basic management and referral of maternal, newborn and child emergencies; and (3) essential setting-appropriate equipment.
