UNDAF Cluster 3: Access to Basic Services

UNDAF Cluster 3 Outcome

“By 2015, an increased number of citizens have access to quality health and education services leading to longer, healthier, and more productive lives.”

The health sector has not progressed as expected. In the UNDAF 2012-2015, UN support will seek to improve sexual reproductive and adolescent health, and child survival, through basic health services to deliver child survival packages, increase uptake of family planning, increase coverage of immunisations, reduce malnutrition and micronutrient deficiency, increase the number of supervised deliveries and coverage of antenatal care, and improve access to medical supplies and trained health personnel to ensure quality of Mother and Child Health (MCH) services offered.

Support will target communicable diseases prevention and management and control of tuberculosis, malaria, and other priority diseases such as dengue and filariasis. The UN will also support improved access to primary health care through strengthening health systems.

Recent cholera outbreaks have highlighted the need to scale-up environmental health. The UN has a comprehensive plan to strengthen the capacity of the health sector to efficiently respond to this issue.
