Report on Rehabilitation Service Costing and Budgeting

The Inclusive Development Hub of USAID’s Bureau for Development, Democracy, and Innovation has partnered with the Accelerator to support countries in strengthening and integrating rehabilitation services in the health systems. Georgia was selected as one of the priority countries for program support, which entails direct technical assistance and regional and global level activities to catalyze country-level work. The program is implemented during July 2021-September 2023 in close collaboration with USAID in Georgia and the DDI Bureau in Washington. The Accelerator issued a subgrant to Curatio International Foundation (CIF) to support the program’s implementation of activities to achieve program objectives on the ground. This includes operational support and technical expertise on Georgia’s health systems and financing context to complement the Accelerator’s global expertise and translation of existing knowledge into locally feasible solutions.

The project’s primary goal is to improve the financial protection of the population requiring medical rehabilitation services.

The project collaborates with the Ministry of Internally Displaced Persons from the Occupied Territories, Labour, Health and Social Affairs of Georgia (MoIDPLHSA), and other critical stakeholders toward the following objectives:

  1. Integration of rehabilitation in Georgian health systems and health financing programs.
  2. Creating support systems for implementing programs from Objective 1.

Identifying the priority health conditions amenable to rehabilitation and establishing priority rehabilitation interventions and eligibility criteria for publicly financed State Health Programs is the first step in achieving these objectives. This report describes the prioritization process and the steps taken to make a list of the first batch of prioritized conditions to be financed through the state program.
