Lesotho Health Systems Strengthening and Counter Gender Based Violence Support

The Challenge

Improve primary healthcare services and standards of care, improve healthcare, and work with the Ministry of Health to modernize health data systems. Overall, improve health outcomes, especially maternal and child health. Support the sustainability of PEPFAR’s hard-fought achievement in reaching HIV/AIDS epidemic control.

Overview and Objectives

Part of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Lesotho Health and Horticulture Compact, this project is an important step in URC’s continued commitment to improving health outcomes for the Basotho people. URC’s team of experts – familiar with evidence-based interventions in health system strengthening – will conduct short-term intensive investigations that support Compact implementation.

This work builds on URC’s efforts in Lesotho since 2018 under the Reducing the Burden of HIV/AIDS and Health Systems Strengthening project. Under that project, URC completed extensive research and assessments to guide the development of the Compact’s health systems strengthening project. URC helped MCC develop the logic model, the monitoring and evaluation framework, and six requests for proposals for the Lesotho-based contractors who will implement the activities alongside the MOH.
