The importance of governance in health systems is well recognized, but there is still considerable debate on how governance interventions affect change in health outcomes and which interventions are appropriate for different contexts. This lack of clarity often reduces health governance efforts to a limited set of interventions, or justifies their exclusion altogether.
To address this evidence gap, USAID, the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Health Finance and Governance (HFG) project launched an initiative to consolidate the existing evidence on how health governance contributes to health system performance and ultimately health outcomes.
Join us Thursday, September 20th at 10:30 am EST as we review the lessons from this research and discuss how civil society can use the evidence to advocate for reforms in health governance.
