KOSOVO - Let's go further !
There has been a long and successful cooperation between Luxembourg and Kosovo in the Health Sector. LuxDev has participated in the implementation of health sector projects YUG/005, KSV/014 and KSV/017 since 2004. Therefore the Ministry of Health (MoH) of the Republic of Kosovo submitted to the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs (MFEA) a request for further support of the healthcare reform implementation.
Luxembourg granted an additional 7 000 000 EUR to the endeavour, bringing the total contribution of Luxembourg to project KSV/017 “Health Support Programme in Kosovo, Phase 2” to 13 000 000 EUR and mandated LuxDev to formulate the project extension. The project will now be extended until the end of December 2022.
The first part of the extended Project KSV/017 will focus on supporting the implementation of the healthcare reform agenda, especially the Health Sector Strategy (HSS2021), which has the following objectives: reforming leadership, management and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E), separating the political and operational aspects of providing healthcare, integrating service delivery and introducing a Health Insurance Fund (HIF).
The project will mainly focus on continuation and consolidation of the capacity development activities at the MoH and other healthcare institutions, such as the Kosovo Hospital and University Clinic Services (KHUCS) including the University Clinical Centre of Kosovo (UCCK), the General Hospital of Prizren (GH PZ) and Gjilan (GH GN), the Medical Professional Chambers (MPC) and the Family Medicine (FM) training programme. Activities will include provision of technical assistance (TA) to the MoH, assistance with the implementation of the Strategic Plans of GH PZ and GH GN, TA and infrastructural support for the Medical Professional Chambers (PMC), as well as TA for the FM training programme.
The Project’s continued aim is to strengthen the health system by focusing on improving quality of care, access to healthcare and increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of service provision.
