The objective of this strategic review is to produce evidence-based
options and recommendations for DFID's strategy for engagement in
Pakistan's health and population sector over the next 3-5 years.
The report suggests approaches that will work with rather than just
through Government, enabling other stakeholders to complement and
strengthen government services. For example, national/international NGOs
might be contracted in certain districts by the provincial governments
to help the latter deliver more and better sexual and reproductive
health (SRH) services through the primary healthcare network. Where
primary healthcare is already contracted out the contractee/service
provider should be encouraged to follow the same principle and contract
in or out certain services (like SRH) so as to ensure synergy between
SRH and maternal, neonatal and child health services and outputs.
