Updated framework now available will assist decision-makers tackling 21st century challenges
Experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies have produced a long-awaited framework to conceptualize the assessment of health system performance.
Health system performance assessment: a framework for policy analysis, published with support from the UHC2030 Health System Assessment technical working group (TWG) and the Universal Health Coverage Partnership, will help policy-makers to analyze possible origins and impact of poor performance on a particular health system outcome. In countries, especially those that receive external assistance, different and overlapping health systems assessments are often supported by different partners. The entry point for the UHC2030 TWG to develop this framework was the need for harmonizing and aligning the analysis of health system assessment (HSA) information across countries and HSA tools.
