The Partners for Health Reformplus (PHRplus) project is the U.S. Agency for International Development’s flagship project in health policy and systems strengthening. USAID looks to PHRplus to provide technical assistance in, and to help maintain, USAID’s worldwide leadership role in health care reform, health policy, management, health financing, and systems strengthening. This project will continue its close working relationships with NGOs and USAID cooperating agencies, international and developing country partner organizations, including the World Bank, WHO, UNICEF, bilateral donors, PVOs, foundations, universities, and host country government agencies.
PHRplus builds on the predecessor Partnerships for Health Reform (PHR) project, with a new, major emphasis on health information and disease surveillance. PHRplus contributes to USAID's objective to improve health systems performance in delivering population, health, and nutrition priority services through
- effective policy implementation
- improved health financing
- appropriate availability and use of health information
- strengthened health delivery systems
In addition to
providing technical assistance and supporting USAID’s leadership role, PHRplus conducts health systems research; implements performance monitoring and results tracking; provides training and capacity development; and is responsible for strategic documentation and transfer of experiences in health policy and systems strengthening.
PHRplus works in over twenty countries spanning four regions of the world and employs 120 professional staff including home and field offices. PHRplus has long-term advisors and country offices in Albania, Benin, Egypt, El Salvador, Ghana, Honduras, Jordan, Mali, Peru, Senegal, and Yemen.
