Project Description
From the World Bank: "The Grant will provide comprehensive data and statistics for the health sector which will serve as the evidence to understand how effective service delivery is in reaching the most in need. The objective of the proposed Grant is to support Panama's Ministry of Health effort to integrate different national health information systems in order for better evidence-based policy and decisionmaking to ensure health service delivery to the areas most in need. The integration involves information systems for water and sanitation, zoonoses and vectors, different types of waste, pollution and environmental risks, among others. The results expected to be achieved under this Grant are: 1) Strengthened national-level decision-making and budget allocation to the health sector based on evidence (data). 2) Strengthened health service delivery to areas most in need based and guided on evidence."
Investment Description
The US$290,000 in investment project financing will come from the Trust Fund For Statistical Capacity Building, for recipient executed activities.
