Procurement Consultant

Uttarakhand Health Systems Strengthening Project (UKHSDP) is conceived as a strategic initiative to enhance people’s access to quality health care services in the state of Uttarakhand. The project seek to support Uttarakhand in progressing towards Universal Health Coverage, as measured by improvement in access to and quality of health services and in providing health financial risk protection. Specifically, the project would focus on improving access to health services for the predominantly remote population of the state, through strengthening public and private health-delivery systems; promoting greater stewardship and managerial capacity in the state directorate; improving information systems; augmenting monitoring and research; and extending coverage of RSBY beyond hospitalization to include primary healthcare services. A key area the project supports is innovative mechanisms for Uttarakhand to engage with private health care providers, expanding their role in meeting the unmet access needs of the state’s population.
