Description

The objective of the Health Financing Partnership Facility (HFPF) is to improve health outcomes in DMCs. The HFPF is an umbrella operational arrangement to enhance administrative coordination and efficiency, and it is not a legal entity or structure. It will mobilize cofinancing from development partner agencies, the private sector, and foundations to support the implementation of ADB’s Operational Plan of Health under Strategy 2020. It will provide grant funds for technical assistance and investments to increase the health impacts of ADB infrastructure activities, improve health governance to expand universal health coverage for poor and vulnerable populations, and increase health security, as a regional public good, through control of communicable diseases.
