Expanded Coverage of Essential Services (PECSE) Final Report

Download this publicationThe Djibouti Expanded Coverage of Essential Health Services (PECSE) project was implemented by JSI between 2004 and 2008 in order to provide the population, in particular those in rural districts, with a package of quality health services to improve access, reduce morbidity and mortality rates among women and children, and promote full community participation in health services delivery.

Following the destruction of health infrastructure caused by the country's civil war, Djibouti presented high rates of maternal and infant mortality and poor accessibility to basic health services for rural populations. PECSE and its implementing partners assisted the Government of Djibouti in rebuilding essential health infrastructure, training health personnel, and designing an effective health management information system.

The Expanded Coverage of Essential Health Services Final Report presents an overview of project activities implemented over the project's four-year engagement, highlights project successes, and stipulates recommendations for future projects. PECSE/JSI, 2008
