Getting on the same page: the concept and assessment of ‘health systems strengthening’
In May 2021, the ReBUILD for Resilience consortium hosted a webinar – ‘Getting on the same page: the concept and assessment of health systems strengthening’. It explored the latest thinking on the conceptualisation of health systems strengthening and the prospects for adopting shared tools and approaches for its assessment. The resources generated from this session are available below.
