Domain objective: Vulnerable people in conflict-affected and remote areas have improved access to quality essential health care and healthy diets delivered through strengthened institutions.
Swiss portfolio outcomes
- Vulnerable people, especially women and children, have improved and non-discriminatory access to adequate and healthy diets as well as to essential and affordable quality health services and health literacy and know how to stay healthy.
- Capacities of relevant institutions are enhanced to contribute to improved health sector planning, management, coordination and service delivery in a conflict-sensitive way.
The first outcome targets vulnerable populations and measures progress in terms of health-seeking behaviour (e.g., number of births attended by skilled birth attendants) and access to health services, based on improved emergency obstetric referrals from EHOs to government health facilities as well as nutrition support. Equitable access to quality services also serves to strengthen social cohesion. Outcome 2 strengthens institutions, resulting in improved coordination across conflict boundaries, inclusive local decision-making, better quality basic health service provision and increased quality of services measured.
