Health planning and access form a central role in the post-2015 UN Agenda, the August 2015 declaration stating their goal to ‘ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages’ whilst achieving ‘universal health coverage and access to quality health care'.
Strategic health planning is a vital policy priority for sustainable development in any context. This programme will examine the international, national and local pressures on health systems as well as the importance of strategy in the development of efficient, affordable and equitable health structures.
Participants will work with leading experts to analyse and debate key topics such as health financing, social determinants and how to use technology to improve health outcomes. Alongside this in-depth look into case studies and subject matter, methods of strategic planning and leadership specifically tailored to health systems will form an integral part of the programme, as will the role of gender. Conceptually, a holistic approach will be taken throughout, allowing participants to improve their organisational capacity, coordination and subject knowledge.
