Project Description
The development objective of Health Rapid Results Project for South Sudan are: (a) to improve the delivery of High Impact Primary Health Care Services in Upper Nile and Jonglei states; and (b) to strengthen the coordination, monitoring and evaluation capacities of the Ministry of Health (MOH). The project has three component. First, delivery of high impact primary health care services in Jonglei and Upper Nile States will continue to improve the delivery of high-impact primary health care services in Jonglei and Upper Nile.The parent project has provided critical support in maintaining health services before and throughout the current conflict. As the situation remains fragile and new pockets of conflict emerge in Jonglei and Upper Nile, the provision of essential health services to the local and displaced populations is urgent and critical. Current implementation arrangements will not change. The proposed second additional financing (AF) will finance the MOH’s Performance-based Contracting (PBC) with a coordination and service delivery organization (CSDO) to implement activities. The CSDO will continue to play an overall coordination function to ensure the delivery of services and to minimize duplication of efforts. Second, strengthening implementation capacity of MOH at the National Level will continue to support the MOH and SMOHs in their management and stewardship roles. Activities will aim at supporting the MOH in (a) grant and contract management and (b) Monitoring and Evaluation. In particular, the AF will focus on improving routine data collection through the Health Management Information System (HMIS), the Human Resources Information System (HRIS), and Quantitative Supervisory Checklist (QSCs), as well as ensuring timely health facility surveys and household surveys.
