Public Health Services Assessment and Restructuring (World Health Organization)

In collaboration with the MOH and WHO Country Office the CHSR conducted a comprehensive Assessment of PH Services in Armenia (2008/2010).  The objectives of this project included:

• To map out and analyse the current public health services, to identify their strengths and weaknesses in order to design a detailed strategy and plan for the reform and modernization of the PH services and for further integration of disease prevention and health promotion services at the primary health care level.
• To review the international evidence and to build up a modern understanding of public health services (definition, scope, boundaries, domains, areas, operations, services, players, integrative approaches, etc.);
• To learn about relevant experience and lessons learned from other European countries for improving the public health services of the health system;
• To discuss and agree on the policy options for reforming, streamlining, modernizing and upgrading the individual and population-based public health services.

The preliminary findings were presented at National MOH-WHO seminars in June and November 2009 and October 2010. CHSR translated the report into Armenian. The CHSR team closely worked with a group of experts from the MOH to finalize the report. The MOH submitted the final version of the report to the Prime Minister of Armenia.
