Uzbekistan - Emergency Medical Services Project (English)

The development objective of the Emergency Medical Services Project for Uzbekistan is to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the emergency medical services (EMS) system. It has four components.1) First component, EMS enabling environment, system management, and quality improvement will support a series of related interventions that are essential in reorienting the EMS system toward the provision of high‐quality emergency and urgent care. This component will finance technical assistance, training, study tours, surveys and equipment. It has four sub-component, i) Regulatory, governance, and operational management, (ii) Behavior Change Communication (BCC) on effective use of the EMS system, (iii) Quality monitoring and analytics, and (iv) EMS system financing. 2) Second component, Dispatch, communications, and information systems will finance the development of integrated dispatch centers in each of the 12 regions as well as in Tashkent. These centers will be responsible for receiving calls and dispatching of all ambulances within their borders, including those assigned to one of the 172 district centers or related substations. The Tashkent Center will also serve as a central coordinating function in case of natural disasters or widespread emergency situations. The central element of these centers would be a common, integrated computer‐aided dispatch and communications system. The dispatch and communications system would be the core of an integrated information system to support both operational and management decision making and facilitate ongoing monitoring and evaluation (M&E). 3) Third component, emergency care system improvement will finance technical assistance, training, equipment. It has three sub-component,i) Training and skills improvement; and (ii) Essential vehicles and equipment; 4) Fourth component, project management will finance the costs associated with the day‐to‐day project management of the proposed project, including the establishment of a new Project Implementation Unit (PIU) within the RSCEMC, PIU staff, and its running costs for the duration of the project.
