Using real-life examples, the Case Competition allows us to learn what does and does not work when implementing, institutionalizing, and scaling up health system programs and approaches. These case submissions 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 2023 Case Competition received 102 entries from 31 countries. Three winners were selected by USAID and the Accelerator’s panel of judges. They showcased their work at a Virtual Showcase Event on November 6, 2023.
