If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The objective of the Health System Performance Strengthening Project for Angola is to increase the utilization and the quality of health care services in target provinces and municipalities. There are four components to the project.

  1. Improving the quality of health services delivery in target provinces. This component would support activities at the provincial and municipal level to improve the quality of the health care services in the target provinces and municipalities with the development of a PBF pilot in two selected provinces. This component includes two subcomponents:
    1. improving the quality of maternal and child health services at the provincial and municipal level; and
    2. piloting performance-based financing.
  2. Strengthening system-wide enabling factors that support delivery of quality health services. This component aims to support institutional strengthening across the national health system towards improving the quality and coordination of health care services delivered at the municipal, provincial, and national levels.
  3. Contingent Emergency Response Component. The component will provide surge funding to finance response efforts directed at preventing an outbreak from becoming a deadly and costly pandemic. The component will only be triggered in the case of a public health emergency
  4. Project Management and Monitoring and Evaluation (US$10M). This component supports project implementation by the MoH, including project management, fiduciary tasks and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E).
