Project Design and Implementation
Modernizing the Moldovan Perinatal System
With the Association of Perinatal Medicine in Moldova, we implemented a project to strengthen several maternities across different health system levels.
The project involved a number of interventions to support regionalization of perinatal care including purchasing of equipment, development of a Health Technology Management system, strengthening of quality of care through capacity building and international exchange with Swiss partner hospitals, development of quality Management, and community health promotion.
The project which ended in 2015 contributed to a substantial reduction in the maternal mortality rate in Moldova. It was funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in support to the National Perinatal Care Programme of the Government of Moldova.
Access to Family Medicine in Tajikistan
In Tajikistan we improve primary healthcare service delivery through fostering the quality of care and better management and planning at facility level. We also empower communities, especially women, to take more ownership over health and health-related matters for example by promoting health literacy of both men and women.
The project works to improve business planning of rural health facilities and supports primary healthcare teams to ensure facilities can be managed more autonomously. In addition, infrastructural and equipment investments are implemented to further enhance the quality of care.
Funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the project is implemented by the Swiss TPH and Safe the Children.
Improved Health Services in Chad
Since 2015, the project aims at improving health system performance and governance as well as access of populations to quality preventive and curative services in two districts of Chad.
Covering a population of more than 100’000 people, the project increases the quality of the offer in respect to mother and child health and nutrition services. In parallel, demand for healthcare in the population is spurred and management and planning are strengthened.
Intermediate results show that the population used health services more frequently which we anticipate to translate into lower mortality rates of children and women in the midterm. The project is implemented in collaboration with the Centre de Support en Santé Internationale (CSSI) and funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
