Framework for the Implementation of the Ouagadougou Declaration
View StatisticsShow Statistical Information
AbstractThe Ouagadougou Declaration on Primary Health Care and Health Systems in Africa focuses on nine major priority areas, namely Leadership and Governance for Health; Health Services Delivery; Human Resources for Health; Health Financing; Health Information Systems; Health Technologies; Community Ownership and Participation; Partnerships for Health Development; and Research for Health. For each of these priority areas, this Implementation Framework proposes recommendations for consideration by Member States in the development of their own country frameworks, except for Health Information and Research for Health which have been taken into account in the Algiers Framework. 2. Among the recommendations for strengthening leadership and governance for health are institutionalizing intersectoral action for improving health determinants; updating comprehensive national health policy in line with the Primary Health Care (PHC) approach and other regional strategies; updating the national health strategic plan to ensure integrated management; and providing comprehensive essential health services.
