Financing Health and Education Workforce Development in Lesotho
ThinkWell is partnering with BroadReach and Ernst & Young under a contract from the Millennium Challenge Corporation to research and analyze the financing of the health system and of workforce development in Lesotho. The findings support the Millennium Challenge Corporation’s negotiation of a new compact with the country.
In the health sector, we are working to identify innovative financing options for the public sector, including public private partnerships and results-based financing programs. In the education sector, we are assessing new financing options, including the potential for results-based programing. We are analyzing Lesotho’s Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to increase the efficient use of funds that are already available. The goals of these efforts are to produce more skilled workers to fill Lesotho’s human resources gaps.
