Project Description


The proposed additional financing will strengthen and expand the ongoing third phase Urban Primary Health Care Services Delivery Project (UPHCSDP). It will build on the existing partnership with the Local Government Division (LGD), Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives (MOLGRDC) to strengthen and scale up provision of primary health services in urban areas, especially the poor and vulnerable, and address gaps in institutions and capacity for sustainable delivery of primary health services.

The additional financing will support the sector framework, National Urban Health Strategy (2014), and its forthcoming Operational Plan. The continued ADB assistance reflects the priorities of the Government's Seventh Five Year Plan, FY2016-FY2020 which places emphasis on the need of primary health care for urban residents including slum and street dwellers. It specifically highlights the need to build a coalition of interests around one harmonized approach for greater coordination between MOLGRDC and MOHFW, and management of urban health.


The proposed additional financing is a follow-up to the ongoing third phase Urban Primary Health Care Services Delivery Project (UPHCSDP) that will close in June 2017 and builds on the now 18-years partnership with the Local Government Division (LGD), Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives, Government of Bangladesh, which provides primary health care services to the urban population, specifically women and children, the poor and vulnerable.


The selection and engagement of consulting inputs will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). The consulting firm will be selected on the basis of simplified technical proposal in accordance with quality and cost based selection procedures. A quality to cost ratio of 90:10 will be followed.


All TA-financed goods will be procured in line with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time).
