The Basic Health Services Strengthening Project (Health - I) falls in line with the new health policy described in the PNDS, whose activities are in keeping with the Bank Group Health policy. The proposed measures should help to solve problems affecting patients at secondary and tertiary levels, to ease the congestion of patients from referral hospitals, where serious and critical cases are treated, and to strengthen the IHC (primary level) where less serious cases are treated while serious cases are referred to hospitals within a reasonable time. The expected outputs are: (i) construction of CSIs and operational facilities; (ii) training of project CSI health personnel; and (iii) rehabilitation of the Ministry's facilities assigned to the PUI. The project comprises two components. The Component I: Strengthening of Basic Health Services concerns: (i) Studies and Supervision; (ii) Construction: 8 IHCs; (iii) Equipment/furniture/supplies; and (iv) Training. The second Component comprises: Project Management: i) Rehabilitation; ii) Equipment/Furniture/Supplies; iii) Technical Assistance; iv) Audit; and v) Operations.
The project’s objective is to strengthen the decentralization of the health system by creating new basic functional integrated health centres (IHCs); as well as to enhance the technical efficiency of the managerial personnel of the IHCs through the provision of training and capacity building programmes.
The primary beneficiaries of the project are the general population of Equatorial Guinea, specifically women of reproductive age, mothers, young children of school going age, under five year olds and infants. Secondary beneficiaries include staff of IHCs in particular; other Ministry of Health staff and members of IHC management committees whose skill base should be enhanced through training and other capacity building programs.
