Health system strengthening

Description

The health reform in Kyrgyzstan has resulted in an increasing access to basic medical services. The management of the health facilities remains however centralized and the inefficient use of limited resources is still an issue. The project intends to improve the efficiency and quality of health care by increasing the autonomy of the health facilities in provision of their services. A Model of Health Facilities Autonomy will be introduced in 3 pilot provinces of the Issyk-Kul oblast and shall be applied in remaining health facilities countrywide. During Phase I, the legal framework to support the introduction of decentralized management in the health system will also be adapted.

The overall goal of the project is to improve efficiency and quality of health care services by expanding the autonomy of health facilities (hospital and primary health care centers). The underlying impact hypothesis is that by granting expanded autonomy to health facilities’ managers, in combination with clear vision, adequate managerial capacity, appropriate accountability mechanisms and effective incentives, they will be able to provide health care services in a more efficient, patient-centered way and with better quality.
