Summary Report on a Framework for Application
In many low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), health systems strengthening (HSS) efforts often involve partnerships between domestic institutions, international donors, and external technical assistance providers. As donor funding declines, countries seek to build capacity for HSS independent of international support.
The Accelerator has developed an institutional architecture framework to assess and build capacity for self-reliant, continuous HSS in LMICs. This framework will enable country leaders to self-assess strengths and weaknesses in their HSS capacity, deliberately plan for capacity building, and track progress toward self-reliance. In addition, it is hoped that external assistance providers will be able to better prioritize
how to complement existing capabilities to implement activities and strategically invest in building additional capabilities. The result will be accelerated progress on key health systems challenges and a faster path to self-reliant HSS.
