Objective: The Government of Niger, with support from the World Bank, is currently implementing a Safety Nets Program that provides cash transfers and promotes behavioral change measures conducive to early child development and nutrition.
A process evaluation will assess the fidelity including quality of implementation of the behavioral change component in the second phase of the program. The evaluation will also seek a better understanding of linkages with health, education and civil registration services that work on early child development and how these can be strengthened. The mixed methods approach of the evaluation will entail observations of program activities, as well as focus group discussions and interviews with program actors and beneficiaries. The process evaluation is tentatively planned to be implemented in January/February 2018, with preparatory activities started in 2017.

The initial scope and purpose of the multi-stakeholder platform for knowledge sharing on access solutions for innovative medicines (henceforth, the Platform) will be to develop and share knowledge and tools for smarter decision making on access strategies for patented medicines for NCDs, through a collaborative approach. The Platform will leverage the pharmaceutical industry’s capacity for developing innovative access solutions and the World Banks role as a strategic long term partner for developing countries and its convening power, to create a reference policy and implementation framework and decision-making tools for maximizing reach of new treatments for populations that typically would not have access to patented medicines, ultimately driving uptake of voluntary access strategies in developing countries.

WASHINGTON, June 24, 2016—The World Bank today approved $150 million in additional financing to help strengthen Bangladesh’s health systems and improve health services, particularly for the poor.
This additional financing to the Health Sector Development Program will continue support to implement the government’s Health Sector-wide Program. The support will help the government address health sector challenges including: sustaining and improving immunization coverage; improving deliveries for pregnant women at public health facilities; and tackling multi-drug resistant tuberculosis. The financing will also help Bangladesh improve public financial management to get more value from its public spending on health. Further, the financing will support developing a robust health information system, including a web-based complaint -handling mechanism – the first in Bangladesh.
