The Lighthouse Project aims to improve the healthcare and outcomes, protect people against catastrophic health expenditure and achieve a 10%-15% efficiency gain in healthcare. This will be achieved through pilot projects aimed at establishing significant integration of service delivery through utilising public-private-partnerships. A district system observatory making use of ICT systems and data analysis will guide the intervention and provide evidence of success. The Project will also use a collaborative consultation process to develop national consensus on priority health policy issues based on collecting and disseminating scientific evidence in support of innovation.
This project that came to an end in December 2016, was implemented by a consortium of organizations, led by FPD, including: AHP, BroadReach, Wits Reproductive Health & HIV Institute (WRHI), Right to Care and Aurum Institute was designed to test a model of seconding doctors to provide PHC services in selected clinics in the NHI Pilot districts.
