Welcome to UHSSP

The Urban Health Systems Strengthening Project (UHSSP) is one component of a UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) funded urban health programme. DFID’s inputs are designed to improve access to maternal, newborn and reproductive health services for the urban poor in Bangladesh through integrating and expanding facility-based and community outreach services. Through the urban health programme, DFID provides support to Marie Stopes Bangladesh (MSB), the NGO Health Service Delivery Programme (NHSDP) funded by USAID and to the Government of Bangladesh through UHSSP. The intended purpose of this third component (UHSSP) is to provide focused support to create a more harmonised and supportive environment for urban health through applying a systems approach. The Terms of reference (TOR) for the project as developed by DFID envisages the following four outputs:

Output 1:          Strengthened coordination amongst NGO partners, between the government ministries and other key urban actors/implementing agencies


Output 2:          Support the Local Government Division (LGD) to develop a common health management information system across the cities, incorporating data from various implementing partners


Output 3:          Harmonising demand-side voucher schemes for increasing access to health services by the poor

Output 4:          Institutional strengthening and capacity building
