  1. Delivery of Improved Services for Health II “Care for Others, Care for Yourself”

  2. Delivery of Improved Services for Health II (DISH II) Project • Collaboration between USAID, MOH, selected districts, FLEP and four U.S. partner institutions: JHU/CCP INTRAH MSH JHPIEGO

  3. Background • Three-year extension of DISH-I (October 99-September 2002) • Total funding $16 million • Coverage: • 12 out of 45 districts • 30% of the population

  4. Coverage

  5. DISH II Objectives • Increase provision of key components of the National Minimum Health Care Package • Strengthen integration of health services and quality of care • Change critical reproductive and MCH behavior • Achieve greater sustainability of health systems and human resources at district levels

  6. DISH II Quality Team • A total of 71 staff members: • 6 expatriate experts • 34 national experts • 31 administrative and support staff

  7. DISH II Key Implementation Features • Implemented in a decentralization structure: • Districts receive a grant to implement activities agreed upon with the project • Some activities cut across districts and are directly implemented by the project

  8. DISH II Project Management • Weekly project management meetings • Districts quarterly review meetings • Semi-annual project review meeting • Collaboration meetings with MOH and other partners in the RH area • Quarterly reports • Annual SO4 report

  9. DISH I Evaluation Survey Findings

  10. DISH I Results Percent of men and women currently using a modern family planning method, by year

  11. DISH I Results Percent of place of delivery for last births in the three years preceding the survey, by year

  12. DISH I Results Percent of women by ever using a condom, ever testing for HIV, by year

  13. DISH I Results Percent of children born in the three years preceding the survey exclusively breastfeeding, by age of child

  14. Highlights of DISH I Results • Use of modern FP increased from 13% to 20% • Deliveries at facilities increased from 48% to 54% • Condom ever use for STD/HIV prevention increased • 12% to 20% among women • 27% to 40% among men • Among 4-6 months old infants, exclusive breastfeeding increased from 17% to 43%

  15. Quality of Care

  16. Quality of Care Studies • DISH-trained providers provided integrated services, especially HIV/STD prevention • Quality was higher for FP than for ANC • Overall, improvements are needed in areas such as client participation in counseling • Exit-interviews show high client satisfaction with service. However, FGD showed mixed feelings.

  17. DISH I Challenges • Maintaining FP use momentum - increase use of LTFP • Improving antenatal care seeking behavior • Increasing facility deliveries

  18. DISH I Challenges • Child nutrition • Improving health service management • Increasing availability and use of HIV testing and counseling services

  19. Highlights to Date

  20. DISH II Project Management • Produced the first 18 months work plan • 12 district work plan workshops held • One-year district grant contracts finalized, funds disbursed • Two quarterly reports produced • Several collaboration meetings with MOH and other partners in the RH area

  21. DISH II Training and Clinical Services Component

  22. DISH II Training and Clinical Services Component Training and supervision continues: • Indirectly by training trainers who in turn train service providers in their respective districts • As the project directly conducts training in additional areas introduced in DISH II: EOC, PAC, LTPM

  23. Training component cntd. • Established district training & supervision teams in all districts; trained these trainers in IMCI & PAC • Update training for 8 doctors in LTPM • Supervised district trainers conducting IMCI training in all project districts • Updated/modularized comprehensive RH curriculum for nurses & midwives as well as for nursing assistants • Working on IPC/C training curriculum

  24. DISH II Behavior Change Communication Component

  34. Lessons Learned to Date A need for developing new approaches to involving districts in national strategy formulation A need for some flexibility & resources in the national strategy to respond to district priorities and implementation strategies

  35. Lessons Learned to Date Joint operational planning of activities between BCC and training components is critical Improved capacity is needed to implement national IEC strategies
