$2.6 Million Provided to Improve Regional Health

Nile Fortune

USAID/East Africa has provided two African partner organizations, the Commonwealth Regional Health Community Secretariat for East, Central and Southern Africa (ECSA-HC), based in Arusha, and the Regional Center for Quality of Health Care (RCQHC) in Kampala, with two, one-year grants totaling approximately $2.6 million. This support will strengthen African health and HIV/AIDS leadership, systems, service provision and outreach, and will improve the quality of health care and life for Africans living in East and Central Africa.
ECSA-HC will use approximately $200,000 in part to: a) develop policy for the management of post partum hemorrhage; b) support countries to develop and implement roadmaps to reduce maternal mortality and improve neonatal survival; c) analyze issues that create barriers to maternal and child health service access and examine how to make health care more affordable; and d) help promote improved food fortification and micronutrient interventions.
RCQHC will spend approximately $2.4 million to: a) build regional skills in pediatric HIV care; b) contain the regional threat of Multi Drug Resistant TB (MDR-TB) and Extensively Drug Resistant TB (XDR-TB); c) improve delivery of community based postnatal care; safe deliveries and child health; and d) increase access to Family Planning services to vulnerable and marginalized populations.
