Description of Project: 

The Lao-Luxembourg Health Sector Support Programme II focuses on strengthening health systems in three central provinces (Vientiane, Bolikhamxay, Khammouane), with an emphasis on the delivery of quality and accessible Maternal, New-born and Child Health (MNCH). The scope design of LL-HSSP II is based on the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) building blocks of health system strengthening. The interventions are grouped into four key result areas:

  • establishment of the Joint Participatory Mechanism (JPM) to strengthen governance, ensure adequate resources for Chapter 63 budgets and facilitate the national contribution to the financing of priority activities;
  • improvement of quality of health services delivery, particularly for MNCH activities at provincial level;
  • creation of adequate infrastructure and technical conditions to support services delivery in the targeted provinces;
  • strengthen the health system through result-oriented planning and management of provincial health activities.
