Under the guidance of JICA Bangladesh Office, the Consultant is expected to monitor and facilitate the implementation of the above yen loan projects by working closely with MOHFW as well as other stakeholders beyond the health sector such as Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Housing and Public Works.  The yen loan projects are programmed to create synergies with the technical cooperation projects.  Therefore, the Consultant is expected to coordinate effectively with the technical cooperation project teams as necessary to maximize results.
