Environmental conditions in the country's health facilities are grossly deficient posing health risks to patients and medical staff, and raising concerns about the sustainability of the environmental infrastructure. The Project's investments are aimed directly at benefitting woman and child health, and its activities specifically address constraints often faced by the poor when seeking health services.
Project social and environmental monitoring is supervised by the Evaluation and Monitoring Specialist. Performance indicators were revised during the midterm review in 2007. Statistical data was collected and analyzed on quarterly basis. Social analyses were conducted by ExpertFikri Consulting Company at baseline, interim, and pre-final stages. The analyses also made use of the state statistics data, current data from MOH, and research data from other international organizations (UN, WHO, UNICEF, and WB).
