Greater Alexandra Renewal Project: Development of an Effective District Health Management Framework, South Africa

Health Partners Southern Africa assisted all key people involved in health care provision to the Alexandra community to develop a single coordinated District Health Management Framework.

 

The aim was to ensure that health services were efficiently and effectively delivered.

 

The outputs of this project included:

  • developing a single budgeting approach
  • providing clarity of roles for all agencies
  • developing an efficient referral system
  • ensuring the appropriate blending of public and private services.

This was achieved by integrating Primary Health Care (PHC) service delivery, and improving the physical facilities, the health service delivery, the referral system, as well as the utilisation of human resources.
