|Peru, Regional Project: Improved Health for Women, Children and Marginalized Populations|
Although maternal and child health in Peru has improved in recent years, health disparities among women and children living urban, rural, coastal, mountainous, and rainforest areas of the country continue to persist:
Leadership, governance, and finances: Strengthen national capacity in the health sector to promote equitable health policies and legislation to guarantee universal access to high-quality health care.
Health service delivery: Improve the health services’ ability to provide responsible, effective, quality health care that achieves a culturally appropriate gender approach.
Health information systems: Public health information and surveillance systems strengthened at all levels of the health sector to generate timely, reliable information disaggregated by age and sex.
Monitoring and evaluation: Strengthening the capacity of national authorities to monitor and evaluate health systems based on primary health care.
