Description

The Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Health Security Project is composed of (i) four loans to Cambodia, the Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Viet Nam (CLMV); and (ii) a grant to the Lao PDR. The project builds on previous and ongoing interventions focusing on communicable disease control (CDC) in Cambodia, the Lao PDR, and Viet Nam; and now including Myanmar.

The impact will be GMS public health security strengthened. The outcome will be GMS health system performance with regard to health security improved. The project has three outputs.

" Output 1: Regional cooperation and communicable disease control in border areas improved.

" Output 2: National disease surveillance and outbreak response systems strengthened.

" Output 3: Laboratory services and hospital infection prevention and control improved.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Economic growth in the GMS is highly vulnerable to outbreaks of emerging diseases, such as severe acute respiratory syndrome, avian influenza, and Middle East respiratory syndrome. Traditional communicable diseases, including drug-resistant malaria, dengue, and antimicrobial-resistant infections, also have a significant economic impact. Health systems weaknesses in CLMV are a threat to health security in the GMS, one of the targets of the United Nations sustainable development goals for the health sector. The project will address key binding constraints in the countries' health system and promote cross-country cooperation aimed at improving both national and international health security.

Health service networks within CLMV have expanded rapidly, but marginalized, mobile, and poor people still have limited access to health services. Disease control programs are in place but often do not reach these vulnerable groups in border areas due to staff and funding constraints.

Surveillance systems for notifiable diseases and syndromic reporting are being implemented in these four countries. Health authorities in CLMV have to increase their capacities for risk analysis data management, community preparedness, and disease outbreak response. Outbreak district response teams are often poorly equipped and financed, and need capacity building on outbreak investigation and management.

Past investments have improved laboratory services in provincial hospitals. In contrast, district hospital laboratories are unable to comply with internationally acceptable biosafety standards or to guarantee the accuracy of their laboratory tests. Formal processes for internal and external quality assurance are lacking. Laboratory auditing for compliance with quality and safety guidelines does not exist.

Hospitals and health centers receive patients with emerging infectious diseases, but infection prevention and control practices in health facilities are substandard. Hospital sanitation and hygiene facilities are lacking. Hospital medical waste management is often unsatisfactory. Such may result in ineffective treatment, the spread of infectious diseases, increased hospital-acquired infections, and development of drug resistance.

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

Output 1:

CAM: Harmonized standard case definitions, and reporting procedures for notifiable communicable diseases need to be jointly defined by countries and ADB. Will be discussed during PMM in 2019. Initial discussion will be held in December 2018.

AOP 2018 included cross border activities by cluster provinces. CAM planned 3 cluster meetings in 2018. (2 cross border activities per year=1 organized by CAM and another by neighboring country).

LAO: Lao uses standard WHO case definitions and has 17 notifiable diseases as well as EWARN reporting. Other CMV countries have differing notifiable diseases. Issue of standardizing case definitions to be raised before the next PMM.

Two cluster province meetings held in 2018. Cross border activities identified at these events. JSE between Lao, Thai and Vietnamese provinces held in April 2018. Cross border activities regularly monitored and documented.

A matrix of activities between provinces will be compiled, by year.

MYA: Agreement and consensus is required for CLMV countries to review and harmonize the existing guideline/ SOPs.

Myanmar-Lao PDR MOU is required to signed in 2018. Cross border stimulation exercise will be conducted in collaboration with LaoPDR in 2018. Training for cross border cooperation and migrant health will be hosted in Q3 2018 in all targeted state or regions. Training for surveillance will be done during crossborder training.

VIE: Harmonized standard case definitions, and reporting procedures for notifiable communicable diseases need to be jointly defined by countries and ADB. Will be discussed during PMM in 2019. Initial discussion will be held in December 2018.

The project has actively implemented cross border activities with Laos and Cambodia, ensuring its targets and implementation of plans. Budget were allocated for 22 border provinces to conduct cross-border meetings for all provinces once a year and joint outbreak response one per year (malaria, dengue, JE, cholera, measles or other outbreaks). Focus on 18 project provinces shared border with Lao and Cambodia.

Output 2:

CAM: Event-based, SARI and ILI data have sex-disaggregate report. CDC department will review the CAMeWARN to included sex-disaggregated data where possible.

AOP 2018 included the activities to improve outbreak investigation and response activities.

LAO: Currently all outbreak data are sex disaggregated and electronic. Disease information sharing continues among CLMV countries.

Lao RRT and S&R staff utilize outbreak protocols. Project will develop checklist to ensure compliance with procedures.

MYA: Myanmar initiated DHIS2 software for routine electronic reporting of Health information. 17 DUNS included in DHIS2 as monthly indicator-based data. Weekly integrated disease surveillance for AFP, Measles, Neonatal Tetanus, influenza like illness and other VPDs, were collected as syndromic approach by paper-based reporting. Immediate reporting for AFP, suspected measles cases, unusual events and any outbreak through available communication methods reported as event based reporting. Mobile digital management for the syndromic disease surveillance among health staffs is targeted for all townships. The baseline two townships were (i) Mawlamyaing and (ii) Ye, where mobile digital management system for disease surveillance has been established.

Almost all of outbreak reports were assessed and actions were taken within 24 hours.

Capacity building for surveillance and response training are planned and operational budget for outbreak response are allocated to all project townships from Q2 2018. Furthermore, appropriate measures for outbreak response is included in the curriculum of FETP and RRT training conducted regularly by CEU.

VIE: The project has implemented Circular No.54/2015/TT-BYT on e-CDs. However, many project provinces/ districts have not sent reports yet.

The project will develop plan for improvement measures after initial assessment.

Output 3:

CAM: Cambodia Laboratory Quality Management System Checklist for Accreditation (CamLQMS) for Clinical and Public Health Laboratories was endorse and published in February 2018. The checklist is aligned with ISO-15189 and will provide training to lab staff in 2019.

The trained laboratory staff will implement the internal audit by themselves follow the checklist in 2020.

The SOP for collection, packaging, and transportation of biological samples is being developed and the training will be provided in 2019.

The workshop and training on biosafety and biosecurity (BASIC) will be conducted in Q3 2018.

LAO:

16/74 district labs audited in last 12 months (21.6%)

18/30 central prov labs audited (60%)

26/74 district labs have SOPs (35%)

16/30 central prov labs have SOPs (53%)

30/93 labs with 2 staff (I or more female) meet the standards (32.2%)

(Source: Project survey in Feb 2018)

Survey will be repeated during project implementation and at end.

MYA: Checklist for auditing quality & biosafety will be developed based on NHL checklist. Quality management & biosafety training modules will be included in laboratory management training Q1 2019.

Internal audition on relevant quality & biosafety components will be carried out and monitoring & evaluation visit will be conducted to all targeted labs IPC committee and its function will be assessed from central level once a year and self-IPC assessment will be conducted on quarterly basis.

Review of existing manuals for sample collection, packaging, transportation is ongoing. Training workshop on SOP for sample collection, packaging, transportation and testing of biological samples for targeted labs is planned for Q3 2018. Accessibility & usability of SOPs in targeted labs will continue follow up. Hospital IPC guideline was launched in 2016 and disseminated to all hospitals across the country. But these guidelines could not reach to some targeted hospitals of the project due to delayed logistic supply chain to remote areas. Hospital IPC trainings are planned for Q3 2018. Promoting use of IPC guidelines is targeted for late 2018. After trainings, monitoring and supervision visit to on laboratory and IPC will be conducted.

NHL is planning to review and update existing biosafety training curriculum. After developing the curriculum, national biosafety training will be conducted (tentatively in Q3 2019). Staff compliance of the checklist and guides in the project areas will be further assessed and followed up.

In 2018, capacity building on laboratory quality management was targeted to be completed and next step for biosafety in Q3 2019. For IPC, at least two IPC coordinators in committee will be identified in each targeted hospital in order to practice IPC criteria.

VIE: PMU will work with IHEs/Pasteurs to develop audit plan for quality and biosafety in the second half of project (2019), after trainings have been conducted in 2018.

The project will allocate budget in AOP 2019 for district level to develop SOP for collection, packaging, and transportation of biological samples.

The project will hire gender and social safeguard consultant to develop GAP in Q4/2018, and ensure targets are achieved.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects

The project is classified as category B for environment, as the project has components dealing with laboratory biohazards and hospital

solid and liquid waste management. Mitigation measures are included in the environmental management plan to address minor environmental risks. An initial environmental examination and an environmental assessment and review framework have been prepared.

Involuntary Resettlement The project is classified as category C for involuntary resettlement. There will be no construction of new health facilities or extension of existing health facilities, and no land acquisition is required. Screening during the selection of health facilities to be refurbished will rule out proposed sites, which require land acquisition and have resettlement impacts.
Indigenous Peoples The project is classified as category B for indigenous peoples. Ethnic minorities in the project areas will be positively affected as they will have better access to improved health services. An indigenous peoples development plan has been prepared for each country, and includes measures to ensure ethnic minority groups benefit from the project.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design During project preparation, there were notable consultations with potential beneficiaries, village health workers, community-based organizations, health staff, provincial and district health managers, provincial governments, central ministries, development partners and NGOs.
During Project Implementation

The MOHs as executing agencies will undertake information disclosures on the Project and its benefits, including but not limited to information related to the RRP, EMMPs and GAP. Public disclosure of the project financial statements, including the audit report on the project financial statements, will be guided by ADB's Public Communications Policy (2011). After review, ADB will disclose the project financial statements for the project and the opinion of the auditors on the financial statements within 30 days of the date of their receipt by posting them on ADB's website. The Audit Management Letter will be not be disclosed.

Reaching isolated communities constitutes a challenge, but provinces will use well-tested existing channels to reach them, such as village health communities, village health workers/volunteers, and grassroots networks existing in the project sites. A variety of communication media that have been proven effective will be utilized which include public awareness campaigns, community outreach, targeted group discussions, thematic workshops at the national and regional levels, and cross-border meetings. Relevant communication materials and knowledge products will be developed for targeted audience and a project website will be maintained throughout the project duration with links to existing MOH websites. In addition, the provincial preventive health centers (in Viet Nam), the provincial health offices in Cambodia and Lao PDR, and the township health offices (in Myanmar), will inform the project stakeholders (including beneficiaries, local nongovernmental organizations, women's and youth unions) on the project activities and progress. Direct links with the communities will be provided by the existing networks of village health volunteers and community health workers.

The MOHs current website on CDC shall contain a page on the Health Security project which is accessible to the public to disclose various information concerning the project, including general information about the project, public procurement related to the project, project progress and contact details in English and their national language. The webpage shall also provide a link to ADB's Integrity Unit (http://www.adb.org/Integrity/complaint.asp) for reporting to ADB any grievances or allegations of corrupt practices arising out of the project and project activities. For each contract, the webpage shall include information on among others the list of participating bidders, name of the winning bidder, basic details on bidding procedures adopted, amount of contract awarded, and the list of goods/services, including consulting services, procured.
