WHO regional workshop on health systems strengthening - an integrated approch
Other Titlesfinal report, 27-29 September 2006
AbstractThis publication describes the outcomes of the discussion on health systems strengthening (HSS) in the South-East Asia Region, with special emphasis on exploring the new window at opportunities of GAVI support. The main constraints identified in health systems strengthening by most countries are: lack of financial resources, shortage of human resources, lack of management capacity, need for improving the quality of primary health care, problems related to accessibility of health care services leading to their low utilization, inadequate infrastructure, drugs and equipment. WHO laid the ground for health systems strengthening in the Region by providing support to countries on the utilization of the GAVI HSS funding window by clarifying the process and implementation strategies.
