0 . MAJOR CHANGES SINCE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE HIP
Within the context of the Debt Reduction and Development Contract (C2D) between France [Agence Française de Développement (AFD)] and Côte d'Ivoire, an amount of EUR 18 015 982 has been transferred, as external assigned revenue, to ECHO pursuant to a transfer agreement concluded with the Ivorian Ministry of Finance in November 2013. This amount will cover a period of three years, with the current HIP covering 2014-2015. An amount of EUR 13 200 000 is allocated to the HIP 2014 in addition to the previously assigned EUR 2 000 000, and the remainder to HIP 2016.
The provided funds are intended to cover four operations supporting the health sector within the context of the ''Projet de renforcement du système de santé (PRSS)''. The projects will be implemented in Western Côte d'Ivoire and the peripheral areas of Abidjan. The projects are implemented within the "Partnership for Transition" LRRD initiative aiming at paving the way for a transition from humanitarian aid to public funding of the health sector. The funds are to be implemented according to ECHO standard operating procedures.
Further strengthening of the health sector is in line with ECHO's strategy and the Government initiated targeted free health care policy targeting children under 5 and pregnant and lactating mothers.
