Technical Committee of the Sector Wide Approach

The Technical Committee of the SWAp is chaired by the Chief Medical Officer of the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and is the main forum for Government, Development Partners and Civil Society to discuss technical issues within the health sector. The Technical Committee represents all those signing the Code of Conduct for the SWAp and serves as a joint monitoring body of the goals and activities of the health sector as outlined in the Health Sector Strategic Plan II, Medium Term Expenditure Framework and Comprehensive Council Health Plans. The Technical Committee has an advisory role; it deliberates on technical issues; makes proposals or recommendations to the SWAP Committee meetings on what actions need to be taken to address issues of health service delivery; advises the sector on how to carry out implementation; and gets information from Ministry departments that need technical review before being submitted to the SWAp Committee.
