UHC2030 joint vision progress

Mauritania joined IHP+ in 2010. The current National Health Policy runs through 2015 and the National Health Plan is for 2012-2020. In May 2012 a Country Compact was signed by the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Development and 25 representatives of development partners and civil society organizations. An IHP+ country grant was supporting the development of a country compact. An IHP+ country grant was also used to support training on planning mechanisms at district level, the development of district plans and the Joint Review process. Mauritania is participating in the 3rd round of monitoring progress against compact commitments by IHP+Results.
