Health Equity and Quality Improvement Project(H-EQIP)
Ministry of Health
Duration: 2016 - 2021
Budget: 175.2 mil USD(RGC:94.2 mil USD, Multi Donor Fund: 81mil USD)
The H-EQIP builds on the innovations supported in the HSSP2, particularly HEFs and SDG, and aims to increase the sustainability of these innovations by improving their resourcing and management as envisaged in the RGC’s HSP-3. It further strengthens the results-based focus of both HEFs and SDGs with a specific goal of improving the quality of health service delivery and service utilization by the poor. In addition, the Project uses a multi-pronged approach to strengthen health systems, especially to support improvements in quality of care, by focusing on enhancing provider knowledge through both pre-service and in-service training, improved availability of critical infrastructure in health facilities, and strengthening Public Financial Management (PFM). Using a set of disbursement linked indicators (DLIs), the Project disburses funds against targets achieved with these health system strengthening measures. Another key strategic shift is to attain institutional sustainability through a transfer of responsibility for third party HEF verification from an internationally recruited firm to an independent government agency, which has been established by June 2018, and extending this responsibility to include verifying SDG results at all levels of the health system.
