About us

What we do


TRF+ was established to support provincial and district health authorities in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to implement the new Provincial Health and Nutrition Programme. 

  • Technical assistance: we provide technical support to the provincial health departments through dedicated provincial core teams, TRF+ experts, and selected consultants and firms. TA activities are managed through workplans jointly prepared by TRF+ and the provincial government and approved by Provincial Executive Committees.

  • Roadmaps: we support high level political commitment to reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health (RMNCH) and nutrition through a ‘roadmap’ approach. A dedicated team of local and international consultants is assisting the planning and implementation activities of the Punjab Health Roadmap (launched in April 2014) as well as the development of a strategic approach to the Roadmap for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

  • Capacity development: our capacity strengthening activities cover the areas of health sector governance and leadership, human resource management and development, procurement and M&E.

  • Public financial management (PFM): our work to strengthen health sector PFM takes into account the initiatives already underway. It emphasises collaboration and synergies in order to avoid duplication and improve value for money.




From 2009 to February 2015 TRF provided technical assistance across Pakistan to strengthen the health systems essential for the delivery of effective maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH) services. It achieved this through:


  • Technical Assistance (TA): we have helped provincial health departments to identify key challenges and devise solutions to improve MNCH. This has included drawing up properly sequenced TA workplans, and procuring and managing TA to ensure that problems are solved, systems are strengthened and results are achieved.
  • Capacity building: we have helped strengthen government systems, capacity and performance in procuring, contracting and managing technical expertise, so that government can reduce its reliance on external support.
  • Monitoring and evaluation: we have strengthened health information systems, and have helped government and development partners to monitor and evaluate progress in achieving MNCH goals and objectives.
