District Management of Health Services
Management of Health Services at District Level 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 at district at regional levels.
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).
