Project Description
The development objectives of the Public Health Sector Support Project for Chile are to: (i) improve the efficiency of the public health care sector; and (ii) improve the quality of non-communicable diseases-related health care services. The project comprises of three components. The first component will improve the efficiency of public health service delivery networks with a focus on its better integration. It consists of following sub-components: (i) improving the integration of public health care services for patients with non-communicable diseases and chronic conditions; and (ii) improving managerial capacity at the public hospital level. The second component, optimizing the procurement and logistics of drugs and medical supplies in the public sector will support strategic objective 7, strengthening the health sector, (specifically its financing) of the national health strategy. The third component, technical assistance (TA), coordination and monitoring will provide TA activities to generate missing information needed to risk-stratify patients insured by National Public Health Insurance Fund (FONASA), develop management tools, and provide training to health managers and staff that are key to support the implementation of components 1 and 2.
