Government-led Process

Investment Case
  • Processes to develop the NHS 2021-2025 affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
  • Notably Ministry of Health and Child Care resumed processes to finalise the NHS 2021-2025 towards the end of 2020
  • The remaining processes holding up finalization of the investment case (IC) include: the results framework, second round of prioritization, costing, finalization and launch
  • Currently the next step is to align the draft investment case (IC) is to align it to the draft NHS
Multi-stakeholder country platform (MCP)
  • It was agreed at the inception of the GFF into Zimbabwe in 2019 that it uses existing platforms i.e. the Health Development Fund/CCM combined as the country platform rather than coming up with a new GFF own steering committee
  • The recommendation was for the HDF and CCM meetings to be separated until the Ministry of Health and Child Care (MoHCC) finalises its Health Sector Coordination Framework which was presented at MODO in December 2020.
  • It should be noted that this is not a GFF steering committee but a platform for coordination of all partners just like the HSIC is not a GFF one but for the Health Sector.

GFF Trust-Funded project(s)
  • The GFF grant for Zimbabwe is a total of USD25 million for a 3 year period.
  • From the 25 million, 5 million is an allocation to the Covid-19 response based on the request from government at the time of concept note writing and development of the project
  • The grant is referenced as the Health Sector Development Support Project or Additional Financing Five (AF5). This means it is a build-on of the previous financing or grant support that the country had been receiving with the first one having been provided in 2011 – 2014 through the Health Results Innovation Trust Fund (HRITF).
  • Since then there has been subsequent additional financing mechanisms and now we have this fund supported by the GFF. The HRITF evolved into the GFF
  • The funding support has the objective to increase the quality and coverage of a package of RMNCAH + N services taking into account the Covid-19 situation. It also seeks to strengthen institutional capacity to be able to manage performance based contracts consistent with country objectives in the sector.
