Brief description

The project was initiated after the findings of the HEP assessment were released, as a major recommendation of the assessment. MERQ provided technical support to the MOH and its implementing partners. As a project led by the MOH, the role of MERQ was to provide technical expertise and other resources to the development of the report. Among other things, MERQ carried out:
