Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), IMA World Health is implementing the Improved Health Service Delivery (IHSD)-Integrated Health Resilience Activity in collaboration with its consortium of local partners—Centres de Développement et de la Santé (CDS), Zanmi Lasanté (ZL), FONDEPH, FOSREF, Konesans Fanmi, and Development & Diagnostic Group—to whom direct funding and activity implementation will be transferred by the third year to move the needle towards more locally led development in Haiti.
Building on the achievements of past USAID investments in Haiti, IHSD is improving services and outcomes for family planning, sexual and reproductive health (FP/SRH), maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (MNCAH), nutrition, HIV, tuberculosis (TB), and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Working closely with Haiti’s Ministère de la Santé Publique et de la Population (MSPP), IHSD is scaling-up high-impact interventions and operationalizing MSPP’s Community Health Strategy. Additionally, to strengthen community health systems and their responsiveness to epidemic shocks, IHSD is engaging community-based organizations through a competitive small grants program to work in partnership with communities, community health workers, and care groups to increase healthy behaviors, drive demand of health services and strengthen platforms to hold the health system accountable. IHSD is also engaging PEPFAR partners to increase availability of comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment services to achieve 95-95-95 targets.
