The Health Sector Strategic Plan II (HSSP II) 2017-2022 is the health sector’s medium term strategic plan outlining objectives and activities and guiding resources over the period 2017-2022, and serves as the Investment Case for Malawi. It succeeds the HSSP I (2011-2016). The goal of the HSSP II is to achieve universal health coverage of quality, equitable and affordable health care with the aim of improving health status, financial risk protection and client satisfaction. The aim of the HSSP II builds on the successes achieved under the previous plan while addressing areas where targets were not met and progress slow.
