Description and results


This is the second project in a series that provides support to the Government of Mozambique’s efforts to achieve the goals and objectives of its Health Sector Strategic Plan. The project forms the cornerstone of CIDA's support for the achievement of development objectives in health in Mozambique. Through this project, CIDA works in close collaboration with other donors and the Government of Mozambique to strengthen the effectiveness of its aid. Efforts are focused on effective, transparent, and accountable country systems; increasing coordination and harmonization among donors; and reinforcing mutual accountability. Sector support projects such as this one also help foster greater policy dialogue between CIDA, government, and partners, which helps to reinforce efforts for effective, focused aid and long-term development results. Continuous monitoring and evaluation of this project is undertaken in coordination with other donors. The project aims to achieve not only nation-wide progress in the health sector, but also progress in other areas. It aims to achieve improvements in the Government of Mozambique's ability to manage and administer its health sector, particularly improvements in transparency, financial management, and accountability. These improvements are an important factor in ensuring that the Government of Mozambique can maintain the progress achieved through this project.
