Health system performance assessment: new framework for policy analysis

When:   -
Timezone: UTC+02:00

The World Health Organization, UHC2030, the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, and the UHC Partnership cordially invite you to the launch of the book ‘Health system performance assessment: a framework for policy analysis’ which introduces a new conceptual framework for health system performance assessment. 

This long-awaited framework links the performance of the four health system functions - financing, resource generation, governance and service delivery - to intermediate and final health system goals. By doing so, this framework helps policy-makers to analyze possible origins of poor performance and the impact of health system bottlenecks on health improvement, people-centeredness, financial protection, efficiency, and equity of the health system.

This virtual event will bring together high-level country health decision-makers and international health system strengthening experts to reflect on the political relevance of the framework.  Panelists will discuss the strategic application of performance assessments in policy- and decision-making processes targeted at achieving universal health coverage.
