The Positive Impact of Infrastructure Interventions on Public Health Services

In November 2016, the ETP&SS program conducted a health facility assessment to understand the overall capacity of eight pre-identified health facilities. The assessment informed the development of a comprehensive facility activity plan, which captured service delivery, capacity building, and system strengthening activities. When implemented in a participatory manner, infrastructure interventions (physical, equipment, and water supply) can enhance government ownership of the decision-making process for quality of care.
