Component 3

Enhance quality of health services and support innovations

This component will improve the quality of health services by developing a comprehensive QA system, improving BMWM, enhancing human resource management, and piloting innovations.

These investments will improve the capacity of the health facilities to respond to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as well as increased preparedness for future outbreaks. The selection of targeted health facilities will address the equity issues between rural and urban. The investments in the areas which are hard to reach and neglect will be prioritized. Under this component, the project will support development of a gender-informed human resource policy that will define career pathways, roles, and competencies.

This component involves various information and communication technology (ICT) activities to improve the overall efficiency and will also pilot ICT solutions under innovations.
