Project Description

According to the bank website, "The program supports fiscal policy, public financial management (PFM), and health sector reforms while providing critical financing during a period of sharp fiscal tightening that will enable the Government of Papua New Guinea to safeguard funding for essential health and other basic services. These two elements reinforce each other: (i) the policy-based actions supporting an improved operational context to gain more benefits from health sector investments and (ii) the health sector investments supporting the implementation of priority policies. Subprogram 1 actions have been sustained and are built upon by subprogram 2 actions, and all 15 subprogram 1 actions have been sustained."
