Abstract

The Public Hospital Modernization Project will: (a) increase the access of the rural and urban poor to medical care services, especially for noncommunicable diseases (NCD), (b) improve the quality of medical care in public hospitals, (c) assist the country in protecting the public health through more effective control of the safety of drugs and the quality of food, and through monitoring communicable diseases, and (d) provide project-related training, and carry out a health care policy-based action program and research studies. Four project components support these objectives: (i) expanding diagnostic and treatment capabilities of the National Medical Center, (ii) upgrading equipment of the National Institute of Health, (iii) replacing and adding medical equipment in provincial and municipal hospitals, and (iv) an action program addressing critical sector issues (hospital efficiency, diffusion of medical technology, fee schedule) supported by relevant research studies, publications on health policy and financing, and a national consensus building program.
