From Passive To Active Agents of Change Fostering a Paradigm Shift in the District Planning Culture in Sindh Province Pakistan


District health and population management teams (DHPMT) are key district-level decision-making bodies. The Health System Strengthening Component (HSS Component) of USAID’s Maternal and Child Health Program revitalized DHPMTs in all 23 intervention districts in Sindh Province. The revitalization has facilitated district-level coordination and decision-making and strengthening fiscal and operational planning to improve health service delivery.

As part of the revitalization process, the HSS Component built DHPMT capacity to conduct participatory decision-making, evidence-based planning, and performance-based budgeting. DHPMTs are now able to overcome many district-specific challenges on their own. JSI, 2017.
