Accoring to bank documents, the project objective is to improve the utilization of quality reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child, adolescent health and nutrition (RMNCAH-N) services, with priority given to underserved areas, refugees and host communities.
The project will be financed by a US$14.5 million equivalent IDA credit and a US$5 million equivalent grant from the Window for Host Communities and Refugees (WHR). The scope of the project is nation-wide, with priority given to refugees, host communities, and underserved populations living in the five regions and other areas such as Balbala, a suburb of Djibouti City. The operation will consist of three components as follows:
Component 1: Strengthening service delivery platforms (US$16.5 million, of which US$4 million from the WHR).
Subcomponent 1.1: Service delivery optimization: This sub-component refers to the service delivery redesign agenda.
Subcomponent 1.2: Supporting the PBF and Direct Financing Facility (DFF) schemes:
Subcomponent 1.3: Supporting the community health platform: This subcomponent supports the MOH in the development and rollout of a community health worker program to deliver a comprehensive community health package.
Component 2: Strengthening institutions, citizen engagement and project management (US$3 million, of which US$1 million from the WHR). This component aims to strengthen the government’s capacity to implement and coordinate programs, within the MOH, across other ministries and agencies on crosssectoral issues (e.g., stunting, FGM, refugees), and between the central government and regional hospitals.
Subcomponent 2.1: Strengthening institutions: This subcomponent will provide technical assistance (TA) and capacity building for various institutions which are critical to RMNCAH-N.
Subcomponent 2.2 Social mobilization for health: This subcomponent will support positive behavior change for better health, help ignite people’s demand for better services and amplify people’s voices.
Component 3: Contingent Emergency Response Component (CERC) (US$0 million). A CERC is included in the project in accordance with Investment Project Financing (IPF) Policy, paragraphs 12 and 13, for Situations of Urgent Need of Assistance and Capacity Constraints. This will allow for rapid reallocation of credit and grant uncommitted funds in the event of an eligible emergency as defined in OP 8.00.
