Transform: Primary Health Care (TRANSFORM )
Transform: Primary Health Care (PHC) works to strengthen Ethiopia’s health system, increase the quality of service delivery across the continuum of care, and improve household and community health practices and health-seeking behaviors. TRANSFORM:PHC will work in more than 400 rural woredas of Tigray, Amhara, Oromia, and Southern Nations Nationalities and Peoples regions, benefiting almost 42 million people.
USAID Transform: Primary Health Care will:
- strengthen the management and performance of the public health system
- build the capacity of regional health bureaus to more effectively manage the way primary health care services are delivered at the woreda level, in primary hospitals, health centers, and health posts;
- improve service delivery quality across the continuum of care;
- improve household and community health practices and health-seeking behaviors;
- enhance program learning to impact policy and programming related to prevent maternal and child deaths.
The goal of USAID Transform: Primary Health Care is to contribute to creating an Ethiopia made up of healthy, productive, and prosperous Ethiopians. The objective of USAID Transform: Primary Health Care is to contribute to achieving Ethiopia’s four transformational health agendas: transformation, quality and equity, compassionate and respectful care workforce, and information revolution. The project employs three strategies across its thematic areas:
- Apply phased and adaptive technical assistance
- Address health system bottlenecks to close the equity gap
- Harness existing mechanisms and investments
