Endorsement of global compact for progress towards universal health coverage

Not UHC2030 member

UHC2030 joint vision progress

Niger joined IHP+ in 2009. The National Health Plan is for 2011-2015. A country compact was signed by the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Finance, 11 development partners and a set of national and international civil society organisations in 2011. It is developing a roadmap for strengthening the monitoring and evaluation system based on an assessment of the current M&E platform. An IHP+ country grant has primarily been used to support the development of the national health plan and the country compact. A national civil society organization, ANBEF, received a Health Policy Action Fund grant in 2010. Niger participated in the 2nd and 3rd round of monitoring by IHP+Results.

Country assistance strategy 2008-2011The CAS considers Niger's central challenge of accelerating and broadening economic growth so that it translates into reduced poverty. To this end the CAS proposes a program focused on supporting the drivers of growth in Niger; strengthening the management of public finances and improving access to basic social services. Consequently the CAS has two strategic objectives: (1) accelerating sustainable economic growth that is equitably shared; and (2) developing human capital through equal access to quality social services. Supporting Niger's efforts to slow the rapid rate of population growth to allow economic growth to have an impact on poverty is an essential element of PRSP II and is treated as a cross cutting issue. Promoting good governance to ensure that increased revenues from growth are efficiently spent and broadly shared is also a cross-cutting issue for the CAS.

European Commission*

The European Commission implements aid programmes in Niger through its delegation and with help from EuropeAid. It finances programmes from the European Development Fund (EDF) and the EU’s general budget.
