Project General Description

The Health Project II responds to a real need of the poorest, the most remote and the most disadvantaged populations in terms of accessibility to health infrastructures in the six provinces of the country. It contributes to the achievement of the objectives of the National Health Development Policy (PNS) of Madagascar in general, and those of its Health Master Plan (PDS) in particular. The project takes into account the construction and rehabilitation, the supply of essential drugs, rolling stock equipment and logistics. This is to take over the activities not yet covered by some donors. The establishment of quality health facilities in poor areas combined with the development of maternal and child health / reproductive health (MCH / RH), awareness campaigns on the fight against communicable diseases (STD / AIDS, malaria) and cervical cancer, will necessarily contribute to improving the health status of the population and, therefore, will increase economic productivity. The project is divided into five components, namely: (i) development of quality health services at the health district level; (ii) institutional strengthening and human resource development; (iii) the supply of essential drugs; (iv) improving the well-being of the family; (v) project management.

Project Objectives

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the National Health Development Policy and the Master Plan of Health, by improving the health status of the Malagasy population (especially women and children). The specific objective is to increase the population's access to quality health care in the poorest health districts.


The beneficiary populations, particularly women and children, are those in the poorest and most isolated rural areas of the country, who are the main victims of diseases and their consequences, particularly the low level of productivity. These people should, thanks to the project, benefit from quality care at a lower cost. The time saved on the disease should be able to be spent on more rewarding, income-generating tasks.
