Senegal Becomes an IHP+ Partner Country

December 7, 2009

In July 2009 the Senegalese government sent a letter to the International Health Partnership expressing the country’s interest in adhering to the IHP+ principles.  In her letter the Minister of Health, Mrs. Theresa Coumbe Diop, explained that Senegal intends to use the tools and practices of the IHP+ to make more progress toward the Millennium Development Goals.  Senegal was subsequently welcomed as an IHP+ country in a letter from WHO Director-General, Dr. Margaret Chan. 

With support from MLI, the Ministry of Health is working to strengthen its Sector-Wide Approach and to move toward an IHP+ country compact.  In August 2009 MLI facilitated a visit by a high-level delegation from Senegal to MLI partner country, Mali, to learn about Mali’s development partner alignment efforts and its recent experience of establishing an IHP+ country compact.  Through MLI, the Ministry and local NGO, Groupe Issa, are currently conducting a comprehensive assessment of Senegal’s harmonization and alignment experiences to date.  This report will draw upon lessons from Mali and other countries and will identify practical ways to improve coordination and performance in Senegal’s health sector.
