Adaptation and Implementation Case Studies
The Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN) brings policy and technical leaders together to learn from each other and co-create solutions to their most pressing health systems challenges. Learning from each other what has and has not worked, they are able to build more equitable, resilient, and efficient health systems to accelerate progress towards universal health coverage. With the support of expert facilitation, the joint learning approach helps draw out country experiences in a structured way to frame problems, identify common issues, explore insights and knowledge, and synthesize practical solutions that are both country-specific and globally adaptable.
As part of this process, JLN members often co-develop new knowledge products, such as step-by-step costing and self-assessment tools. To date, JLN members have co-created 45 knowledge products on a variety of subjects. Members then bring knowledge products back to their countries, adapt them to their country’s specific needs, and finally use or implement the knowledge product to solve a particular challenge. The use of JLN knowledge products is one clear example of the impact the JLN can have downstream in health systems; by enabling countries to use best-practices from JLN country experience as they work towards long-term health system goals, such as expanding and improving on UHC programs. These case studies profile the use of knowledge products in various settings.
