Project Description
According to the bank website, the Health Services Sector Development Program (HSSDP) will help Papua New Guinea (PNG) strengthen health services through policy reforms and direct investments in health systems. A diagnostic assessment of the coverage, financing, and quality of health services is required to ensure that the interventions are designed for maximum impact. The HSSDP will contribute to the achievement of the National Health Plan (NHP) (2011 2020) and the Development Strategic Plan (2010 2030). In particular, the HSSDP aims to improve national public expenditure management and strengthen health systems. The HSSDP builds upon ADB's long-term in-country engagement in both the health sector and public finance management (PFM).
