The USAID-funded Jordan Health Finance and Governance Activity (HFG) aimed to improve health sector sustainability and resilience in Jordan over five years. The activity supported Jordan’s commitment to UHC declared in its National Health Strategy 2016-2020 (“to provide health, financial and social protection to the entire population on a fair basis”)
HFG applied a health system strengthening approach to address structural and systems-related weaknesses within Jordan’s health finance landscape, and address gaps and deficiencies within public sector health governance.
ECO Consult contributed to strengthening the Government of Jordan’s GOJ’s governance capacity in the health sector by:
- Strengthening governance and decentralization of the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), by streamlining systems and institutionalizing efficiencies.
- Supporting improving sub-national health governance structures’ ability to oversee and manage health activities from a financial and performance perspective.
- Improving the transparency and accountability of Ministry of Public Health MoPH financial management and procurement systems;
- Enhancing the government’s ability to engage with and respond to communities and community group needs and concerns.
- Working with the government on how to best use the media to communicate initiatives and campaigns.
- Supporting the promotion of information sharing and use of data.
- Contributing to improving government’s stewardship/oversight over the private sector.
