Currently Omar Mwalim is leading a five-year project in Zanzibar which is technically and financially supported by BCEPS. The project is about revising the whole Essential Health Care Package (EHCP); however, the specific focus for the coming five years will be on NCDI. The project will propose the implementation plan and establish baseline data prior the implementation of the EHCP. There will be a mid-term review by 2025 to observe the effect of the EHCP.
