Medical: Health Care
French term or phrase: soins de référence
le renforcement des structures de prestation des soins de référence au niveau national et régional

is it simply a high-level of care? (bearing in mind we are talking about a *very* poor country..)

specialty consultations
Explanation:
Simply medical consultations, often to a specialist, from the first line health care provider. In other contexts "référence" clearly means something else but here it is a referral beyond the first line, and not necessarily to tertiary care centers.
