|Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation|
|During Project Design||The TA will establish a stakeholders' consultation and coordination mechanism at the MOH to ensure the participation of all stakeholders, a sector-wide approach, and ownership of the development of the HSMP. The TA will use a wide participatory and consultative approach where the primary responsibility lies on the MOH while ensuring (i) participation and engagement of national and international stakeholders from the onset; (ii) broad and systematic consultation with health sector stakeholders, including medical staff, clients, professional associations, and private sector participants; (iii) use of an evidence-based approach and a well-documented strategy; and (iv) promotion of ownership at the central and local levels through dissemination of the strategy documents for discussion and feedback.|
