2.1 The SRHR Project/Initiative
Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is based on the principle that all individuals and communities have equitable access to their needed health care, in good quality, without suffering financial hardship. UHC helps drive better health and development outcomes. Achieving UHC by 2030 has been endorsed as one of the Targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Pakistan is progressively moving towards phased implementation of UHC Benefit Package of Pakistan (Essential Package of Health Services and Inter-sectoral interventions) that has included SRHR interventions.
The Government has undertaken various efforts to gather critical information that aim to fill the current knowledge gaps in regard to SRHR related matters within the country. For example, a comprehensive service availability and readiness assessment (SARA) was conducted in ICT in 2020 as a baseline before implementation of the UHC benefit package on a pilot basis. Thereafter, SARA has been rolled out to 6 more districts (one in each Province and areas) and trainings for data collection are underway. In order to have baseline information through SARA for all 12 districts in phase I of the UHC benefit package implementation, there is need to roll out this assessment to the remaining 6 priority districts.
The Ministry of National Health Services, Regulation & Coordination (MoNHSR&C) with the support of WHO, therefore, would like to roll out comprehensive Service Availability Readiness and Assessment (SARA) survey in the remaining 6 UHC benefit package phase I priority districts. Assessment of the availability of health facilities with regard to physical presence and functional presence, and facility readiness to provide health care services, mainly for essential services package including family planning and comprehensive abortion care, are important data sources for monitoring health system capacity to respond to population needs and monitoring health system performance over the years, in addition to providing up to date data and information for planning.
