Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Primary stakeholders include selected staff from the Ministry of Local Government, Rural Development, and Cooperatives; Ministry of Health and Family Welfare; project implementation units of the UPHCSDP; NGOs involved in the UPHCSDP; donor consortium; community-based organizations; representatives and officers of city corporations and municipalities; and representatives of the poor and of vulnerable groups. Stakeholders include relevant line ministries and other private providers of health services. A stakeholder analysis will be conducted as part of the feasibility study. The study will identify key project stakeholders and to plan the project activities. During project implementation, participatory processes will be incorporated into mapping target beneficiaries from urban slum and low-income areas, and into monitoring health services through the neighborhood and ward health committees at the health facilities. Citizen score cards and routine display of up-to-date public information about staffing, stock, facilities, and fee rates will be examined to improve accountability of the service providers and facilitate participation of service users in monitoring services. The communication, participation and consultation process will be done through a number of workshops, involving NGOs, CBOs and other stakeholders.
During Project Implementation Ongoing consultations with primary and secondary stakeholders will continue during implementation.
