Project Description
The objective of the Improving Maternal and Child Health through Integrated Social Services Project for Haiti is to increase the access and use of maternal and child health, nutrition and other social services in the recipient's territory. The proposed Additional Financing would finance Hurricane response activities in the affected areas, mainly: (i) to restore the quality and supply of health services (e.g. via rehabilitation and re-equipping of health facilities damaged by the Hurricane); and (ii) to scale-up cholera prevention and response activities, to help address the new front for cholera that has opened up in Hurricane affected areas. The AF would also fill the financing gap created under the Original Grant to finance emergency response activities immediately after Hurricane Matthew struck Haiti.
Investment Description
This project seeks the approval of the Executive Directors to provide an additional International Development Association (IDA) grant in an amount of SDR 18.3 million (US$25 million equivalent) to the Project. The proposed Additional Financing (AF) would be financed by IDA’s Crisis Response Window (CRW), as part of a package of a US$100 million of support from the World Bank to help the Government of Haiti recover and rebuild after Hurricane Matthew, which struck the country on October 4, 2016.
