House of Commons International Development Select Committee Inquiry into Health System Strengthening - Open University Submission
DFID’s support for health systems strengthening (HSS) in low income countries (LICs) is welcomed. The Open University’s response addresses the following aspects of Committee’s questions concerning the effectiveness of DFID’s current approach to HSS: DFID’s support for the six building blocks of health system strengthening; DFID’s role in ensuring better balance between rural and urban healthcare; and the UK’s work with other development agencies, partner governments, communities and civil society on health system strengthening.
