Digitalisation and Quality Improvement in the field of Maternal, Newborn and Child Healthcare

Location: Kyrgyzstan  |  Funded by: GIZ

Key objectives:

  • Improve competencies of staff at primary health care level.
  • capacity building of staff to take on elements of the new PHC model of care that puts the patient in the focus (integrated patient-centred care) and to familiarise staff with the new tasks and responsibilities of the task shifting model which aims at optimising the skills mix in the PHC facilities by reorganising the scopes of practice.
  • Support of the digitalisation process at the PHC level: Though a dedicated eHealth policy document has guided the development of digital health in the last five years, the development of the digital health system remains a rather fragmented effort.

Project description: The main aim of this new Technical Cooperation module is to improve the quality of health services in the field of maternal, newborn and child healthcare (MNCH), particularly at the primary level of healthcare, in the focus regions Chui and Osh.
