Audit of Selected Activities Funded Under USAID/Bangladesh’s Population and Health Program

Country: Bangladesh
Fiscal Year: 2009
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: No
Description:

In its FY 2009 budget request, USAID/Bangladesh requested $42.6 million to fund activities in its health program, which approximates 40 percent of the total amount requested to carry out all its programs. In the health program, USAID-administered assistance will fund basic health services to approximately 20 million people every year that would not otherwise have access to health care. Assistance also will fund programs that increase access to clean water and hygienic sanitation facilities, improve nutrition, and support reproductive health services. Funding will support bilateral programs to combat human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV

/AIDS) with programmatic emphasis on a range of interventions related to care, treatment, and prevention. A program goal in the health sector is the transition of greater responsibility for provision of health services to the public and private sectors with a concurrent gradual reduction in dependence on U.S. assistance.

This audit will (1) determine whether selected activities funded under USAID/Bangladesh’s Population and Health Program achieved intended results and (2) assess the program’s impact.
