Publication: Kyrgyz Republic : Health Sector Fiduciary Assessment
Manas Taalimi, a health sector development program covering the period of 2006-2010, was developed in 2005 by the Ministry of Health as a successor to the first broadly successful Manas I strategy and is an expansion of the health goals embedded in the National Poverty Reduction Strategy (NPRS) and Comprehensive Development Framework (CDF). The First and Second Health Sector Reform Projects financed by the Bank used a traditional project implementation structure with a stand-alone Project Implementation Unit (PIU). The Second Health Sector Reform Project divided fiduciary and administrative functions from technical functions by having two separate but related units: a PIU for the administrative and fiduciary work and a Technical Coordination Unit (TCU) for component coordinators and technical issues. Under Manas Taalimi these fiduciary and technical functions will be integrated into the country's health sector systems and structures. This arrangement with high-level policy coordination and fiduciary functions integrated into the health sector s fiduciary systems and technical decisions taken in each of the Ministry's own technical units is an evolution from the PIU/TCU model employed under Health II and is responsive to the sector wide approach (SWAp) that has been adopted for Manas Taalimi.
