The Punjab Human Capital Investment Project (PHCIP) is a World Bank funded project initiated by the Government of Punjab that aims to support the implementation of key investments in health, education and social protection for human capital accumulation in Punjab. The project is being implemented in 11 districts of Southern Punjab with the support of three implementing agencies, namely the School Education Department (SED), Primary & Secondary Healthcare Department (P&SHD) and Punjab Social Protection Authority (PSPA) as being the lead implementer.
