Project Description

According to ADB website, the government has asked ADB to provide support through the policy-based lending (PBL) modality, which will include two subprograms to tackle development challenges in the education and health sectors. Dialogue with the government on reform is substantially advanced with regard to education, but at an early stage for health. Thus, the first subprogram will focus mainly on education sector policy reform and include initial support for policy reform in the health sector, while the second subprogram will increase support for health sector reform.
