The Health Infrastructure Priorities Projects (HIPP) scheme was
introduced in 1993/4 as part of the implementation of the NAHS. These preliminary pilot
projects were expanded in 1997 to focus on large scale infrastructure developments in
communities where they would have maximum impact on health. Activities include provision
of water supply, sewerage, priority housing, internal roads, drainage and dust management.
