Project: Enhancing Health Services Delivery Project
Reference #: MOHW 00000
The Ministry of Health and Wellness has embarked on a project designed to improve access to some critical services provided at public health facilities. This initiative builds on previous efforts to reduce wait time for services and is envisioned will result in shorter wait time for admissions as well as shorter hospital stays. The initiative is also set to reaffirm government’s commitment to the Abolition of User Fees in public health facilities.
Entitled “Enhancing Health Care Delivery Project”, the project will focus primarily on three (3) key areas impacting the health sector’s ability to respond timely to the health care needs of the population. The areas of focus are: (i) diagnostic radiology services (ii) elective surgeries and (iii) removal of social cases from hospitals.

Responsibilities will involve working closely with the Technical Programme Advisor, the Regional Health Authorities (RHAs), private service providers and international development partners to determine and implement appropriate arrangements for the short-term outsourcing and subsequent reintegration of those services that are the primary focus of the project.
