Challenges Cont’

public health facilities leaving out private
sector providers including NGOs
 Effective tracking of fund disbursement
and utilization of budgetary allocations to

 Access to affordable RHCS by service
providers in the private sector including
NGOs following NMS change of position not
to supply non public sector facilities.
