Integrated Health Project in the Democratic Republic of Congo: Final Performance Evaluation

The five-year IHP supported the DRC’s National Health Development Plan (Plan National de Développement Sanitaire (PNDS), MSP, 2011–2015). The IHP’s main goal was to improve the enabling environment for and increase the availability and use of high-impact services, products, and practices for family planning (FP), maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), nutrition, malaria, and tuberculosis (TB), Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in target health zones (HZs). IHP was implemented by MSH and its partners the International Rescue Committee (IRC), and Overseas Strategic Consulting Ltd (OSC).

IHP had two components: Component 1 corresponded to the first strategic focus of the DRC’s PNDS, which is to strengthen the HZs’ capacity to deliver high-impact services and products by addressing both the supply and demand sides of services; Component 2 corresponded to creating an enabling environment for strong HZs, with particular emphasis on leadership and governance and the provision of resources.
