Health Systems Readiness and Responsiveness

The Health Systems Readiness and Resilience Working Group believes in working towards strengthening health systems globally, and further aims to conduct research on the different mechanisms for health systems strengthening worldwide. Understanding the how health systems across each WHO region are currently being strengthened, as well as highlighting best practices from these regions are the primary goals of the group.

Currently, members from the group have been putting together a video documentary of IWG members to highlight perspectives from their regions on what lessons can be learned to embolden health systems during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. The group also has a forthcoming review of regional health system strengthening efforts, which also aims to provide insight into what actions have helped and hampered response to COVID-19.
