The survey would also assist the Ministry to advocate for finding support to implementation of the recommendation for improvement of service delivery. The HFRSA assessment was designed as a census using an instrument that includes observations of physical inventory and tools (i.e. guidelines, job-aids), records and reports (i.e. stock cards, clinical registers, health management information systems reports (HMIS), as well as interviews with service providers at the sites.
