According to bank documents, the original project objective is to increase coverage of key maternal and child health interventions in targeted rural districts consistent with the Recipient's ongoing health initiatives.
The current project objective is to increase coverage and quality of key health interventions with an emphasis on MCH services in targeted rural and urban districts and strengthen capacity for results-based financing contract management, consistent with the Recipients’ ongoing health initiatives.
The proposed fifth Additional Financing to the Health Sector Development Support Project (AF V) will continue to support the three current project components with some adjustments in scope and will introduce a COVID-19 emergency response component. Support will include measures to improve coverage and quality, and strengthen implementation capacity to manage performance-based contracts, building on lessons learnt from implementation and assessments of RBF. Experiences of other countries and available evidence informed the design of the COVID-19 response component.
The following changes are proposed as part of AF V:
Christine Lao Pena
Senior Human Development Economist
Republic of Zimbabwe
Mr. George T. Guvamatanga
Permanent Secretary, Finance & Economic Development
Ms. Inge Barmentlo
Manager for Health Care
