Strengthening of district health services

Much of our work at Health Partners Southern Africa has focused on strengthening district health services in Africa.


Working at this level requires a high degree of political sensitivity, strategic thinking and stakeholder engagement, all of which are critical components of embedding health sector reform. We support this with the following:

  • Developing integrated management tools for the evaluation of Primary Health Care (PHC) facilities
  • Appraisals of facilities with respect to infrastructure, equipment, staffing, management, information systems, patient care, finances and accounting
  • Developing a single budgeting approach
  • Developing an efficient referral system
  • Developing PHC services
