History: Start in 2013 and scaling up phase from 2018 onwards
Feasibility score: 52%
Supported by: Ministry of Health, National Nutrition Agency, World Bank
Description: The Government of Gambia is implementing through the National Nutrition Agency (NANA) a PBF program in 5 of the 7 health regions covering 40% of the total population. All PBF regions are rural but exclude the urban towns. There are still design problems leading to a feasibility score of 52% such as a limited number of indicators, incomplete separation of functions and the fact that the PBF program has so far mainly been implemented by the NANA. There is a need to strengthen the PHC Unit assigned the responsibility of being the PBF Unit of the MOHSW. Design improvements are required.
