URC leads new USAID project to improve Haiti's health care system
Date:10/21/2013

University Research Co., LLC (URC) is leading a new project in Haiti, a country with complex public health issues, including decentralization, HIV/AIDS, and cholera, to improve the population's health status. The three-year project, called Quality Health Services for Haiti (Services de Sant de Qualit pour Hati SSQH) North, is funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID). URC will support the Haitian Ministry of Public Health and Population (Ministre de la Sant Publique et de la Population/MSPP) to increase the use and quality of its primary care and community services. Our partners include Abt Associates, Save the Children, and two Haitian organizations, the Foundation for Reproductive Health and Family Education (Fondation pour la Sant Reproductrice et l'Education Familiale) and the Centers for Development and Health (Centres pour le Dveloppement et la Sant.)

"URC is proud to have the opportunity, together with our partners, to support the MSPP in this important project and continue our long history of strengthening health care systems and improving health care quality around the world," said URC President Barbara Turner.

Working in Haiti's four northern departments, URC and its partners will work to increase Haitians' use of primary health care services, particularly in rural or isolated areas; improve the functionality of selected referral networks that link communities with health care facilities; facilitate sustainable delivery of quality health care services; and strengthen departmental health authorities' capacity to manage and monitor health care service delivery. The project will also support services related to gender-based violence and child protection at key sites.

Key project elements include quality improvement and results-based financing. Quality improvement improves the effectiveness, efficiency, and safety of health service delivery processes and systems, as well as human resource performance in
