Afghanistan - System Enhancement for Health Action in Transition (SEHAT) Project : emergency project paper (English)

The development objectives of the System Enhancement for Health Action in Transition Project for Afghanistan are to expand the scope, quality and coverage of health services provided to the population, particularly to the poor, in the project areas, and to enhance the stewardship functions of the ministry of public health (MOPH). Financing is needed for implementation of the basic package of health services (BPHS) and essential package of hospital services (EPHS) through contracting out and contracting in arrangements both in rural and urban areas in provinces supported by the European union (EU), the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF) and the World Bank, covering a total of twenty one provinces in the country (out of thirty four provinces). System enhancement for health action in transition (SEHAT) will be a platform nation-wide project, which will allow for financing health services in more provinces if additional resources become available. The project will also strengthen the national health system and ministry of public health's capacity at central and provincial levels, so it can effectively perform its stewardship functions in the sector.
