Solomon Islands: Preparing the Strengthening Urban Health Services Project

Sovereign (Public) Project | 53085-002 Status: Active

The proposed transaction technical assistance (TRTA) of $700,000, to be implemented over a 21-month period (January 2020-September 2021), will provide technical analysis and

assessments to assist the government and the ADB to develop the proposed Strengthening Urban Health Services Project. The TRTA is justified given the scope of activities and specialist nature of skills required. Due diligence will be undertaken based on the proposed project design. The TRTA will also build the capacity of the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS) to administer the ensuing project, and enhance project readiness for timely implementation given ADB's relatively new engagement with MHMS. The TRTA is included in the ADB's country operations business plan for Solomon Islands, and the ensuing project is in the 2021 pipeline.
