Project Description
The objective of the Additional Financing for the Health Sustainable Development Goals Program for Results Project is to improve the delivery and use of a comprehensive package of maternal and child health (MCH) services. The program paper proposes the following changes to the original program design: i) addition of Disbursement Linked Indicators (DLIs) that will trigger disbursement upon attainment of results on: (a) nutrition; (b) increased proportion of rural households with protection from high out of pocket expenses for health care; (c) improved access to skilled birth attendance in lagging regions; (d) strengthening adolescent and postnatal health services; and (e) select fiduciary and system targets including specific targets in community participation and engagement; ii) dropping DLI no. 6 on the balanced score card approach whose implementation roll-out will not allow for the measurement of its impact on service delivery as was envisaged under the original program design; iii) scaling up DLIs whose targets have been met but which require stretch targets for further results; iv) changes in the Program Action Plan to spur action in areas such as postnatal care, community engagement, gender based violence; fiduciary management; and v) addition of an investment project financing (OP/BP 10.00) component to support identified gaps in capacity and information systems
