of the population aiming at improving the general health status of the population in a programmatic approach. The overall goal of the Program ‘Support to Decentralized Health Systems in Vietnam’ is that the population in selected provinces, especially the poor and disadvantaged groups, have improved access to decentralized, needs-based and quality assured health care services. GIZ is using a results-based-monitoring system (RBM) in order to measure the impact of project’s activities over time. To collect the necessary data, a baseline survey has been performed by Mekong Economics in 2010. For reporting purposes at the end of phase one of the program, a second round of data needs to be collected using the same methodology and instruments employed for the baseline assessment. The objective of the consultancy is to collect a second round of data and information valuable for the results-based-monitoring (RBM) system of the program ‚Support to Decentralized Health System’ in Vietnam according to the indicators defined.
