This World Bank project focuses on three priority areas: (1) strengthening the health care delivery model; (2) improving institutional management of the Costa Rican Social Security Administration (CCSS); and (3) optimizing financial management of the public health insurance. According to the Bank, the project will help ensure that the network has greater capacity for prevention, early diagnosis, and control of non communicable diseases such as Zika. To this end, the Bank says the funding will be used to update clinical guidelines and pathways, upgrading equpment, and expanding infrastructure. In addition, the project will build on work on interventions recommended by a panel of independent experts to enhance efficiency, governance, and accountability of the CCSS. Through the support of this Program-for-Results project, the World Bank says that resources will be freed up for the CCSS for capital investments.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF WORLD BANK
The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
