USAID/Senegal Health Project 2016-2021: Redacted Project Appraisal Document (PAD)

This REDACTED Project Appraisal Document is a key step in the process for awarding a new suite of projects for USAID/Senegal’s health program for 2016-2021. The proposed objectives outlined in this Project Appraisal Document summary build on the current integrated portfolio of activities that will come to an end in October 2016. 

The 2016-2021 Health Program seeks to improve the health status of Senegal’s population and make strategic investments to build country capacity and have a sustainable impact on maternal, neonatal, and child mortality and public health priorities. The long-term goal focuses on three key objectives: 

  • increasing access to quality services, 
  • increasing the commitment of individuals and communities in the management of their own health and health systems, and 
  • improving the management and performance of the health system. 

These objectives will contribute to achieving the Government of Senegal’s Ministry of Health’s National Health Development Plan goals to: 

  • reduce maternal mortality, 
  • reduce under-five mortality, 
  • reduce neonatal mortality, 
  • increase the modern contraceptive prevalence rate, 
  • reduce unmet need for contraception, and 
  • reduce the prevalence of underweight children under-five. 

These goals also include improved performance of the health system for prevention and disease control plus improved sustainability and governance of the health system.
