USAID Health Systems Strengthening Case Competition

USAID Health Systems Strengthening Case Competition

The USAID Health System Strengthening Case Competition, supported by the Accelerator, 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.

Participants asked questions of our winning authors and engaged in a facilitated discussion about the impact of systems-thinking approaches on health system outcomes and how to sustain and scale up these approaches.
