Health systems strengthening

On 13 June 2011 the CEO of Future Health Systems, Dr. Sara Bennet, participated in a panel at the Global Health Council Conference in Washington, D.C. The panel examined different approaches to strengthening health systems, which is seen as essential to increasing acces to quality health care. Sara argued that a multiplicity of approaches is a good thing, if it reflects responsiveness to differing contexts. But ultimately, there is a strong need to embrace more nationally driven health systems strengthening agendas and support the development of national-level capacity to drive such agendas.

Sara's presentation, and those of the other discussants, as well as an audio podcast of the event can all be found on the Health20/20 website.
