~~USAID Hemayat Project is to primarily increase utilization of high quality Hemayat services through culturally-appropriate and cost-effective interventions to strengthen and enhance existing primary care services provided through the Ministry of Public Health’s (MoPH) Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS) and the private sector. The Hemayat Project will also strengthen referral systems to Essential Package of Hospital Services (EPHS) at the provincial level towards improving the continuum of care, especially for vulnerable populations.  The Family Health Action  Group ( FHAG) inclusion as a component of CBHC resulted to utilizing community members to spread health awareness and key health messages particularly among mothers, healthier families and lifestyles, increased demand for the use of available health services, established a strong information-sharing network within the community and improved referral system. The CBHC Department of MOPH in cooperation with the HEMAYAT project for Strengthening Community Based FP/MNCH Services has moved forward with the decision to further expand Family Health Action Group model in HEMYAT target provinces.
