Cordaid has just signed three contracts with the World Bank for a total value of 3 million euro. Together, we will strengthen the health system in the Central African Republic (CAR).
This 7th of September, in Bangui, three contracts for a total of 3 million euro have been signed to reinforce the access and quality of the healthcare system in CAR for the next two years. Remco van der Veen, Cordaid Programs Director and the Honorable Minister of Health, Fernande Ndjengbot, signed these contracts in the presence of Prime Minister Simplice Sarandji and Jean-Christophe Carret, the representative of the World Bank.
The amount allocated will be spent on running costs and technical assistance in three health regions, covering a population of 1.2 million inhabitants.
An additional amount of 6.8 million euro will be added for the direct support of about 200 health facilities, including six reference hospitals. They will be provided with performance subsidies (RBF strategy) and infrastructure rehabilitation. These new contracts will focus on capacity building to strengthen the supply chain management of drugs, both at regional and national level, with our consortium partners HERA and ASSOMESCA.
