The health sector skills building support project aims to support Government effort to improve access to quality and affordable health care services by the population of Djibouti, while promoting inclusion and gender equality. It's a response to a request by the Government of Djibouti in 2015 for support in financing the construction of the National Social Security Fund (CNSS) hospital. The main expected outcomes are: (i) qualitative and quantitative strengthening, and human resources development: training of medical (53), paramedical (236), psychosocial (2), administrative (25), and maintenance (15) staff; (ii) improvement of access to health insurance by the population through the availability of quality health care services that are adapted to the needs of policy holders; (iii) reduction of the very high cost (USD 6 million per annum) of medical evacuations or even their elimination in the long run; and (iv) reinforcement of medical equipment maintenance. The project comprises three components, namely: (i) Human Resource Development; (ii) Support for the Operationalization of Universal Health Insurance and the Functioning of Health Facilities, including the Future CNSS Hospital; and (iii) Project Management.
The project’s general objective is to back Government’s efforts to improve access to quality and affordable health care by the people of Djibouti. The specific objectives are to: (i) develop human resources for health (medical specialists, paramedics, managers and maintenance specialists) and place a wide range of medical specialties at the disposal of the population; (ii) reduce the cost of evacuating patients abroad for specialized medical care; and (iii) enable the functioning of health facilities.
Project activities will benefit the country’s entire population (approximately 800 000). Staff trained within the project framework will work in the country’s structures. Furthermore, the project will support the development of Universal Health Insurance and the Maintenance Centre, both of which will benefit the Djibouti population, in general, and vulnerable groups (children, women and senior citizens), in particular. The project will benefit persons other than those covered by medical insurance, thus extending quality services to them.
