Project Background

The confluence of four key factors creates a pivotal opportunity to accelerate progress toward achieving the government of Bihar’s (GoB) 2017 targets for reductions in rates of mortality, fertility and malnutrition, and increases in immunization coverage.
These factors include: 

a) Consistent political support from GoB to improve the health of women and children, exemplified most recently by the launch of the Human Development Mission (ManavVikas Mission) under the chairmanship of Chief Minister in the state;
b) Recent launch of the government of India’s (GoI) RMNCH+A strategy; 
c) Success of the Ananya program in identifying strategies and developing solutions that support these goals; and 
d) Recognition by the Health Department and Social Welfare (ICDS) Department of the value of the work of Ananyaand other development partners in Bihar. 

• To capitalize on this opportunity, CARE will lead the establishment of a Technical Support Unit (TSU)), which will closely work with and support the Health and Social Welfare (ICDS) Departments of the GoB in their endeavour to achieve rapid and sustainable change in health and nutrition. 
• The proposed TSU will provide catalytic support to the two departments to refine policies, systems and processes, transform capabilities and behaviours, and build ownership to unlock the potential of both public and private sector providers to effectively implement solutions. 
• The work of the TSU will focus on effective technical interventions in maternal and child health, family planning and nutrition. Key drivers of change will include the transfer of skills and building ownership of approaches and solutions by Health and Social Welfare (ICDS) Departments. 
• The State RMNCH+A Unit (SRU) of the TSU will consist mainly of technical experts from CARE and other development partners who will work closely with GoB to develop effective strategies to achieve GoB’s 2017 targets for reductions in rates of mortality, fertility and increases in immunization coverage.
