The Government of the Republic of Angola places great importance on the provision of sound health care services to its population. The Expanded Program on Immunization is one of the Ministry of Health priority programs.
Angola experienced one of the worst periods in its recent history, which was characterized by two phases of armed conflicts that directly affected the entire population. The social sectors, particularly basic health services were most hit by the war. The massive destruction of infrastructures and the small scale investment in the health sector have all contributed to the state of poor health of the population.
This paper introduces a strategic investment plan, based on recommendations from the Technical Evaluation Reference Group, to strengthen country data systems in order to prepare countries to measure impact and to position the Global Fund to better deliver on its goal of investing for impact. The SIIC is requested to review the document and make a funding recommendation to the Board for approval.
