USAID/PRIMARY HEALTH CARE PROJECT IN IRAQ (USAID/PHCPI)
Annual Report  Year 1  |  March 4, 2011 - March 31, 2012

April 30, 2012 

The USAID Primary Health Care Project in Iraq (PHCPI) is funded by United States Agency for International Development (USAID) under Contract No. AID-267-C-0-11-00004. The project team includes prime recipient, URC, and sub-recipient organizations Management Sciences International and Sallyport Holdings, Inc. This publication was prepared by University Research Co., LLC (URC) for review by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The health status of the Iraqi people has significantly declined over the past two decades. The under-five mortality rate is now 44 per 1000 live births, with the majority of these children dying from pneumonia, diarrheal disease, and premature birth.

Child malnutrition has increased steadily, with incidence of low birth weight exceeding 10%. Maternal mortality rates have increased to 84 per 100,000 live births as access to quality antenatal and safe delivery services has declined.

2  As the country moves forward with stabilization and reform, ensuring access to routine, high quality, and equitable healthcare has emerged as a critical need and the Government of Iraq (GoI) has responded by renewing its commitment to improving the quality of Primary Health Care (PHC) services.

Baseline Assessment Report 2011

The main objective of the baseline assessment was to generate information to identify health gaps and strengths. This information will serve as a basis for monitoring and improving PHC management systems, clinical practices and community involvement in order to achieve the PHCPI objective of better health for Iraqis.

The baseline assessment was designed to be conducted at four levels of the Iraqi health system (National, District, Health Facility/ Hospital and Community). Several resources, including WHO’s 2011 “Integrated District Health System based on Family Practice Approach Assessment Guidelines and Tools”, were used as references in the development of this assessment. The assessment measured both quantitative and qualitative information from a variety of health facilities and stakeholders. Seven assessment modules were applied in the assessment. Collectively, the assessment efforts reached 11 department of health (DoH) district governors (DG), 11 medical syndicates, 7 international donors, 11 PHC Department Directors, 11 Planning Department Directors, 10 Human Resource Training Department Center (HRTDC) Directors, 10 District Directors, 74 PHC clinics, 14 District Hospitals, 12 community groups, 12 private health facilities and 681 PHC clients. The baseline assessment provided rich details relating to the state of the primary health care system in Iraq. Summary of the key findings are as follows:The main objective of the baseline assessment was to generate information to identify health gaps and strengths.
