Health Services Delivery Grant - Performance-based Partnership Grants (PPG)
DATES: July 2008 - January 2014
Through a host-country contract mechanism, the Partnership Contracts for Health (PCH) project supports the delivery of the Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS) and the Essential Package of Hospital Services (EPHS) in more than 500 health facilities including district hospitals, comprehensive health centers, basic health centers, sub-health center clinics, and approximately 5,000 health posts in 13 provinces. USAID currently supports the implementation of the BPHS and EPHS in Badakhshan, Baghlan, Bamyan, Faryab, Ghazni, Hirat, Jawzjan, Kabul, Kandahar, Khost, Paktika, Paktya, and Takhar provinces. BPHS and EPHS in the remaining provinces are supported by the World Bank and the European Community. The facilities are run by non-governmental organizations that are contracted by the Ministry of Public Health. The BPHS and EPHS programs are the GIRoA’s national strategies to deliver and expand health services to address the most common health problems throughout Afghanistan. The Ministry is the first government agency within Afghanistan certified to receive direct funding from USAID.
Services in the remaining provinces are supported by the World Bank and the European Community.
