According to bank documents, The project objective is to increase the utilization and the quality of health care services in target provinces and municipalities.
Through a partnership with the Global Alliance Vaccine Initiative (GAVI), an Additional Financing of US$9.7 million to the HSPSP will focus on strengthening the delivery of child health services. GAVI is coinvesting through the HSPSP project not only because this is perceived to be the most efficient way of significantly impact immunization coverage, but because GAVI believes that co-investing through the HSPSP will strengthen government systems for financing and for an integrated and comprehensive approach to service delivery. Out of an initial list of 18 municipalities with the highest share of under-immunized children, 13 municipalities in four
provinces have been selected to receive GAVI additional financing to support the delivery of child health services, with a focus on integrating immunization services to primary health care service delivery. The 13 municipalities are: Benguela, Cubal, Lobito in the province of Benguela; Cabinda in the province of Cabinda; Cela and Sumbe in the province of Cuanza Sul; and Belas, Cacuaco, Cazenga, Kilamba Kiaxi, Maianga, Sambizanga, and Viana in the province of Luanda. These 13 targeted urban/peri-urban municipalities in the four provinces concentrate 50.8 percent of the country’s non-immunized children and represent a total population of 9,324,468, of which 396,290 are children under five. Of the 396,290 children under five in these 13 municipalities, 125,511 are not immunized – that is 32 percent of under five children in these 13 municipalities are not immunized (125,111/396,290). However, when compared to the total number of under/non-immunized children under-five at the national level (246,736), the 13 target municipalities concentrate 50.8% of the non-immunized children across Angola
