  19. 19. USAID’s former Health Finance and Governance Project created several tools to share lessons learned on civil society engagement and governance, and in partnership with USAID’s ASSIST project, on quality: • https://www.hfgproject.org/tools-civil-society-health-governance/ • https://www.hfgproject.org/governance-to-improve-the-quality-of-health-services-a-research-agenda/ Examples of OHS Program Partnerships with Faith-Based Organizations: • In Tanzania in FY17, the ASSIST program provided technical support to MOHCDGEC (government) structures, regional IPs, faith-based organizations, and community groups to apply quality improvement methods towards attaining PEPFAR 3.0 and UNAIDS 90-90-90 goals on achieving HIV epidemic control. • In Lesotho in FY16, as a part of strengthening the linkages along the PMTCT continuum of care, USAID worked with 12 facilities including four faith-based facilities to increase the percentage of mother-baby pairs that are retained in care from 20% in February 2014 to over 90% in February 2016, and in the percentage of mother-baby pairs receiving standard package of care, from 20% in May 2014 to almost 100% in Feb 2016. • HRH2030, with funding from PEPFAR and USAID, is working with the Ministry of Health (MOH) of Malawi and the Christian Health Association of Malawi (CHAM) to strengthen the health system by increasing the supply and distribution of human resources for health (HRH) through existing systems targeting HIV/AIDS. Through this work 300 health care workers were retained and managed in 63 PEFAR priority sites in Lilongwe and Zomba districts and more work to sustainably manage health workers continues in partnership with the Ministry of Health. 19 Tools and Examples:

  25. 25. Center for Innovation & Impact “Business-minded approaches to the development, introduction and scale-up of health interventions to accelerate impact against the world's most important health challenges.” 25
  26. 26. 26 Center for Innovation and Impact (CII) Overview: Supporting innovation and scale-up for USAID’s global health priorities Role Approach What we do Accelerate the development, introduction and scale up of priority global health interventions Catalyze Innovation Scale for Impact Identify + Apply Cutting- Edge Practices Promote and reinforce innovative, business-minded approaches to address key bottlenecks in development, introduction and scale up
  27. 27. 27 How can I work with CII? CII is part of the Global Health Bureau Front Office and supports all global health related work across the Agency. Our Market Access Team provides support on strategic planning, market shaping, innovating financing, digital health, and human centered design. This team has access to several mechanisms that can be leveraged including: • Scale for Impact for strategic planning, market shaping • Invest+ for innovative financing projects • Digital Square for digital health projects • Engage Design for human centered design projects Our Innovation Team identifies new innovations through 3 main Grand Challenges For Development (each issued a BAA and resulted in over 150+ awards) and provides hands-on support to these innovators to scale: • Saving Lives at Birth • Fighting Ebola • Combating Zika and Future Threats If you are interested in working with CII or have any questions, please reach out to cii@usaid.gov
  28. 28. 28 Example of CII’s work—Blended Finance for Global Health • CII recently developed a Blended Finance Roadmap, to support and strengthen the capacity of our Missions, to leverage additional private capital for global health • The Roadmap is a six-step process that the Mission can walk through to identify blended finance opportunities to achieve its health goals • Blended finance is the use of public or philanthropic resources to mobilize new private capital for development outcomes Report available for download @: www.usaid.gov/cii
  29. 29. 29 Case Study: Blended Finance for Global Health in Tanzania • The Government of Tanzania is increasingly moving towards supporting the public sector as the primary health care provider • The expansion of the public system is a long process, and other providers, including FBOs, still form a crucial link to service delivery for low income populations • The Government is also actively rolling out a national health insurance program, ensuring access to services for patients at qualifying healthcare facilities, including FBO run facilities • However, FBO run facilities are currently unable to provide uninterrupted services due to: – Shift of government funds towards public facilities – Stockouts and shortages of drugs at FBO facilities – Difficulty in paying utilities and staff salaries affecting service delivery • CII, in partnership with USAID/Tanzania, explored the role that blended finance could play in helping to sustainably address the financing challenges FBO run health facilities are currently facing
