Project Description

The project seeks to improve the quality and efficiency of the grassroots health system in the targeted provinces, with a focus on the management of selected non-communicable disease (NCD) and maternal and child health (MCH) tracer conditions. This will be achieved by (i) enabling the commune-level facilities to take on the management of select noncommunicable diseases, (ii) improving the utilization and quality of services already provided at commune level, and (iii) strengthening the capacity of the district to provide appropriate referral and support services. There are 3 components in the project implementation as:

Component 1: Improving the quality of care at the commune health stations and enabling them to take on a new role on disease management

Component 2: Strengthening the district health services (DH/DHC cluster) to support the new role of the CHS and provide continuity of care

Component 3: Enabling grassroots reforms, promoting quality improvement, piloting and scaling-up of innovations, implementation support, and results monitoring
