Chad - Health Sector Support Project (English)

The Health Sector Support Project of Chad had the following ratings: outcomes were unsatisfactory, risk to development outcome was substantial, Bank performance was moderately satisfactory, and borrower performance was moderately unsatisfactory. The lessons learned included: 1) The support of the central ministries is essential for an operation with the ambition of addressing the most pressing issues in a sector; 2) Supervision of a broad-based sector operation should include a review of budget implementation for the sector and agreement on an updated Medium-Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) on an annual basis. This was not done for the project under review; 3) Heroic efforts to get things done at the micro level do not bring about expected results if the macroeconomic and governance environment becomes increasingly hostile. At the mid-term review, which took place a month after the portfolio review, the Bank team should have come to the conclusion that continued support to the sector was difficult to justify under the unchanging country circumstances; and 4) In such a challenging and difficult country environment fraught with governance-related issues, the design of projects should be simple and well-targeted.
