Management Sciences for Health to Bolster Quality, Access to Primary Care in Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan

Arlington, VA—Management Sciences for Health (MSH) today announced it will engage with partners in Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan to boost the performance of and access to primary health care. The effort, funded by UNICEF, builds on MSH’s commitment to achieving universal health coverage by strengthening primary health care systems as well as our expertise in reproductive health, family planning, and immunizations, among other areas.

MSH will coach UNICEF and government counterparts to conduct landscape analyses of each country’s primary health care (PHC) system and use our newly developed PHC Costing, Planning, and Analysis (PHC-CAP) Tool to estimate the costs of PHC service delivery. This evidence will be used for developing investment cases to drive PHC reforms and advocate for financial resources in each country. The project will culminate with an MSH-led regional training for UNICEF staff on conducting PHC landscape and cost analyses.

This work builds on MSH’s strong partnership with UNICEF over the past decade in strengthening the delivery of PHC in countries such as Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Madagascar, and Malawi.
