Proposal for HSS support: Bhutan
With GAVI HSS support Bhutan is aiming to tackle the main health system constraints that hinder expansion of immunisation services to many difficult-to-reach populations. Those constraints were identified as lack of competent, motivated staff, especially in remote rural areas, and a lack of adequate logistics and transport facilities to transport patients and supplies. This HSS proposal primarily targets development of a qualified and complement workforce, through improved and updated systems for pre- and in-service training and skills updating. In Bhutan health services are exclusive provided by the public sector.
