Context & Needs
The Agence française de Développement (AFD) has set up a dedicated financing instrument for peace
and resilience in the Middle East, called the Minka Middle East Initiative. This instrument finances
projects aiming at increasing living conditions and access to essential services of crisis-affected
population. These projects should also contribute to build trust between State and society and reduce
tensions between communities.
In Mosul, AFD aims at launching activities in the newly rehabilitated MRCC established within and
under the leadership of the University of Mosul. This project proposal received strong support from
the Iraqi authorities and stakeholders met on AFD’s first mission in the health sector in Iraq, during the
second quarter of 2019.
AFD expressed interest to participate in the final investments required to upgrade the current medical
equipment and ensure the proper functioning of this site with a granted amount of 10 million euros.
AFD would finance the acquisition, maintenance and/or repair of medical equipment and
infrastructure. This may include small renovations as well as mechanical, electrical and plumbing
engineering to ensure the proper functioning of the material and equipment. AFD would also support
the reinforcement of the MRCC management strategy, as well as training of medical, paramedical,
and administrative personnel.
The overall objective of the project is to improve access to quality and accessible healthcare services
for the population of Nineveh Governorate.
It breaks down into three specific objectives:
- To support the proper functioning of the newly rehabilitated Medical Research and Care Centers
in Mosul University;
- To strengthen the capacity, skills and resources to attract and retain qualified employees of the
Medical Research and Care Centers;
- To support the Mosul University's management capacities to ensure the long-term sustainability
of the project.
A preliminary feasibility study was conducted between May and September 2021 by Expertise France
through a team of technical experts in order to assess and define the needs in terms of rehabilitation
and development of the Medical Research and Care Center (MRCC) of Mosul University, and to allow
the design of a larger project in support of the MRCC that should be implemented in 2022. The specific
objectives of this feasibility study were: 1) Assess the availability and proper use of the required
equipment of the MRCC; 2) Assess the available Health human resources and planned governance

mechanisms at the MRCC. The study resulted in a final report shared with AFD in September 2021 that
included a list of strategic recommendations.
In order to define a comprehensive action plan within the framework of the future 2022 MRCC project
funded by AFD, some of the recommendations from the feasibility study shall be completed by
additional expertise. This will allow to accurately address the essential prerequisites for this project
and to facilitate the elaboration of a complete strategy.
