Event: Social Accountability from Health Systems Strengthening to the SDGs

News

Future Health Systems is a research consortium working to improve access, affordability and quality of health services for the poor. We are a partnership of leading research institutes from across the globe working in a variety of contexts: in low-income countries (Bangladesh, Uganda), middle-income countries (China, India) and fragile states (Afghanistan) to build resilient health systems for the future. After a successful first five-year phase from 2006-2011 (see our success stories), we are entering a new six-year phase of research, funded mainly by UK aid.

Event: Social Accountability from Health Systems Strengthening to the SDGs

Future Health Systems

Social accountability has received increasing attention in both health and other sectors of development through increasingly rigorous evaluations, case studies, review of the evidence, and calls to action. The evidence so far is mixed, but also complex to establish and interpret.

With a relative abundance of tools and approaches around, what have we learned about not just ‘what works’ in social accountability but what it takes for it to work, and how much it can accomplish in terms of performance of and equity in the health system?

The DC Health Systems Board held a meeting on February 8, 2017 from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST in Washington DC, which brought together notable contributors to the field who presented what we know about both the potential and the requirements of social accountability efforts, including for health systems strengthening. We then looked across other sectors and engaged participants in a dialogue about how to move forward meaningfully.
