Committee on Investing in Health Systems in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

Type: Consensus Study
Topics: Global Health, Public Health
Board: Board on Global Health

Activity Description

Over six months, the committee will produce a brief and focused report to Congress and other U.S. government authorities on the value of American investment in health systems in low- and middle- income countries. The report will summarize how health systems improvements can lead to better health, reduce poverty, and make donor investments in health sustainable. It will also describe an effective strategy for donor investment in health given the increasing self-sufficiency in USAID's partner countries. The study will not involve detailed technical comparisons of specific regional or country strategies, but rather will recommend broad priorities for health systems strengthening.
