Local Health Systems
CIET has supported local health infrastructure development since its earliest work in Central America in the 1980s. In Mexico the Microregional Planning project helped build a grassroots health infrastructure in some of the poorest and most remote areas of the State of Guerrero.
In Bangladesh from 1998 to 2003 CIET did a district-by-district evaluation of the nationwide Health and Population Sector Programme and evaluated a related pilot hospital improvement initiative.
In Canada’s Atlantic provinces local public health infrastructure was the subject of the LoPHID project in 1998-2000.
Between 2008 and 2014 CIET is helping to develop new health information and planning systems for two states in Nigeria, Bauchi and Cross River.
