Haiti - Improving Maternal and Child Health Through Integrated Social Services Project : additional financing (English)

The objective of the Improving Maternal and Child Health through Integrated Social Services Project for Haiti is to increase the access and use of maternal and child health, nutrition and other social services in the recipient's territory.This Project Paper seeks the approval of the Executive Directors to: (i) provide an additional IDA grant in an amount of SDR 18.3 million (US$25 million equivalent) to the Project. The proposed Additional Financing (AF) would be financed by IDA’s Crisis Response Window (CRW), as part of a package of a US$100 million of support from the World Bank to help the Government of Haiti recover and rebuild after Hurricane Matthew, which struck the country on October 4, 2016. This event was described and the proposed Word Bank response outlined in the CRW Paper circulated to the Executive Directors on January 22, 2017 and considered at a technical briefing held on January 26, 2017. In this context, Management underlined that funding from ongoing projects was mobilized to respond to immediate needs in the affected areas and proposed providing funding in the form of grants for the above-mentioned package, consisting of four additional financing operations in the Transport and Disaster Risk Management sectors, the Health Sector, the Water Sector, and the Agricultural Sector to be financed from the CRW. The proposed AF would finance Hurricane response activities in theaffected areas, mainly: (i) to restore the quality and supply of health services (e.g. via rehabilitation and re-equipping of health facilities damaged by the Hurricane); and (ii) to scale-up cholera prevention and response activities, to help address the new front for cholera that has opened up in Hurricane affected areas. The AF would also fill the financing gap created under the Original Grant to finance emergency response activities immediately after Hurricane Matthew struck Haiti on October 4, 2016.Concurrently, the Project would be restructured to: (i) revise the Project Development Objective (PDO) and Results Framework to reflect the expanded geographical coverage and emergency response objectives of the project; (ii) activate new safeguards policies: the Involuntary Resettlement Policy (OP/BP 4.12) to anticipate the possibility – although highly unlikely – of involuntary resettlement in the Hurricane-affected areas, the Physical Cultural Resources Policy (OP/BP 4.11) and the Pest Management Policy (OP/BP 4.09); and (iii) add a new disbursement category for potential compensation of affected individuals under OP/BP 4.12.
