According to bank documents, the project objective is is to increase the utilization and the quality of health care services in target provinces and municipalities.
US$80.0 million of the total AF financing of US$145.0 million will return to Component 1 and 2 to finance original activities as outlined in the HSPSP Project Appraisal Document.
Component 2 supports institutional strengthening across the national health system including the strengthening of the national School of Public Health. The US$30 million financing made available under CERC2 was the original allocation for the school of public health. This school of public health activity is advancing and on track for disbursement in year 3-4 of the project, but the amount allocated to the school of public health was made available for an immediate CERC2. Component 2 will also be amended to allow financing to support large endemic disease programs, such as, HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis. This will be extremely important in light of the dual impact of COVID19 pandemic on both the morbimortality of these three health priorities as well as in the inevitable decrease of public health financing that was highlighted above. GoA, through the Minister of Health, formally requested financial support to procure HIV drugs (anti-retroviral drugs (ARVs)). Considering the economic crisis experienced both globally and in Angola due to the COVID19 pandemic, such requests are likely to continue in the near future and therefore the public health directorate will need continued financial support to ensure effective program implementation. Through this additional funding the vertical programs will receive support to develop and implement Annual Action plans, including but not limited to: procurement of drugs and other related health commodities, development of integrated supply chain plans at CECOMA, technical assistance in terms of program management and trainings.
