2023 USAID Health Systems Strengthening case competition

NOTE: Given the considerable volume of submissions received this year, the team is currently in the final stages of reviewing the posters. Please expect to receive updates within the upcoming weeks.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

The Accelerator will conduct its second annual Health System Strengthening case competition in 2023. The Case Competition is an opportunity for USAID staff and partners working on health system strengthening (HSS) activities to showcase the work they are doing and the impact that their activities are having on health systems and health outcomes. Using real-life examples, the Case Competition will allow us to learn what does and does not work when implementing, institutionalizing, and scaling up health system programs and approaches. These case submissions will help inform USAID and its partners’ ongoing work and will contribute to learning syntheses and dissemination under the USAID HSS Learning Agenda to strengthen the global HSS evidence base.  

The 2022 Case Competition received 24 entries from 15 countries. Three winners were selected by USAID and the Accelerator’s panel of judges and were invited to showcase their work during the Accelerator’s October 2022 Showcase Event.
