The program's outcome is the improvement of access, equity, and quality of service delivery in the education and health sectors to accelerate progress toward the MDGs. It will be implemented in accordance with national priorities as reflected in the current medium term development plan (RPJM). The program will assist the Government in the re-orientation of fiscal expenditures to the social sectors and the reduction of regional disparities.

II. Policy Reforms in the education sector for MDG acceleration. The PRMAP will lead to: (i) improved access to junior secondary schools in under-served areas; (ii) improved O&M support for smaller/remote schools; (iii) increased affordability of education by poor students/households; (iv) enhanced quality and equitable deployment of teachers; (v) education service delivery meeting minimum service standards (MSS); (vi) improved planning and implementation of education services; and (vii) greater transparency of education outcomes to enhance accountability.

III. Policy Reforms in the health sector for MDG acceleration. Program support will result in (i) increased public financing for MDG-related health programs; (ii) better targeting of public financing for health services for the poor; (iii) improved effectiveness of maternal neonatal and child health care (MCH) and reproductive health (RH) service delivery through influencing provider behavior; (iv) improved effectiveness of communicable disease control (CDC) through integrated programs; (v) improved performance and monitoring for health-related MDGs; and (vi) improved financial information with regard to MDG-related health expenditures.
