Health System Strengthening in Global Fund supported programs

Support the integration of RSSH (resilient and sustainable systems for health) measures into the funding requests of the current Global Fund funding cycle.

Countries receiving Global Fund grants are facing challenges regarding the integration of measures leading towards a resilient and sustainable health system. BACKUP Health is supporting selected pilot countries to implement programmes financed by the Global Fund more efficiently and effectively with regards to coordination in the health sector, health systems strengthening and management. The project is comprised of three parts

Part 1: Training modules on RSSH

• Conduct a comprehensive review of existing materials
• Provide recommendations concerning the modification of e-learning training tools
• Provide general recommendations concerning the delivery method of training
• Adapt the existing training modules in order to develop a comprehensive training course on RSSH measures, provide a ToT on the training modules and supervise the first training courses in the pilot countries

Part 2: Analytical tools

• Comprehensive review of existing tools for RSSH gap analysis
• Categorisation of these tools into a matrix to assist stakeholders with finding the appropriate tool and to provide the GFATM with a range of analytical tools it can use to give tailored recommendations to countries

Part 3: In-country support and pilot testing

• On-spot support of the RSSH/HSS measures’ integration into the different standalone or integrated funding requests and of the grant making process
• For Burkina Faso only: Evaluation of 263 CBOs involved in GFATM processes and provision of recommendations based on their performance
• Pilot testing of the developed training modules and the analytical tool
