Description
The Health Services Sector Development Program (HSSDP) will help Papua New Guinea (PNG) strengthen health services through policy reforms and direct investments in health systems. A diagnostic assessment of the coverage, financing, and quality of health services is required to ensure that the interventions are designed for maximum impact.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
The HSSDP will contribute to the achievement of the National Health Plan (NHP) (20112020) and the Development Strategic Plan (20102030). In particular, the HSSDP aims to improve national public expenditure management and strengthen health systems. The HSSDP builds upon ADB's long-term in-country engagement in both the health sector and public finance management (PFM).

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation

During Project Design

Stakeholder and beneficiary consultations will be initiated during TRTA, which will lead to stakeholder engagement

and participation plan(s).

During Project Implementation
A program and reform steering committee will bring together key stakeholders from government institutions and development partners. Project component designs and individual policy reforms are based on or will incorporate feedback from consultations with identified stakeholder groups, led by the responsible implementing agencies. Participatory capacity, human resource development, and training needs assessments will be conducted at the institutional level.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

The TRTA will be carried out by a team of consultants, totaling 27 person-months of

consulting services (18 international person-months and 9 national person-months). The

consulting team will comprise a public health specialist (the team leader), health governance and

reforms specialist, medical supplies expert, financial specialist, procurement specialist, gender

and social safeguards specialist, resettlement and/or land acquisition specialist, environmental

safeguards specialist, health system governance and public finance management specialist, and

a health coordinator. Consultants will be recruited using individual consultant selection in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).

All consultants recruited.

Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
