Health Systems Strengthening

Our work strengthens the performance and interconnectedness of the health system building blocks identified by the World Health Organization: service delivery, health workforce, strategic information, commodities, health financing, and leadership and governance. We provide high-quality technical assistance that focuses on national priorities and builds on and maximizes the effectiveness of a country’s existing resources.

URC's health systems strengthening work emphasizes a systematic, evidence-based approach designed to bring about significant improvement in:

  • Patient and population health outcomes, particularly among the poor;
  • Efficiency and effectiveness of systems and processes of care; and
  • Social responsiveness and accountability.

Through continuous quality improvement and innovation, and close and supportive relationships with a country's MOH, we build institutional, programmatic, and financial capacities for a high-performing health sector that adapts to changing situations.
