Primary Health Care Financing and Payment Country Pairing Evaluation Report

September 30, 2022

In 2020, the PHC Financing and Payment collaborative pushed the boundaries of traditional webinar group-based learning and tested a more intimate and in-depth collaborative learning modality: country pairings. This modality pairs two or three countries with a specific interest in a topic – one that may not be a widely shared interest across the collaborative – to probe deeper into the implementation experience of a resource country and discuss details that are relevant to their countries. The JLN conducted a small developmental evaluation and the purpose was to capture and learn from how these pairings worked and to capture lessons learned from the country pairing approach. By documenting this new method, the JLN will be equipped with data-driven findings on this innovative approach to joint learning for modification, replication, or scale up in the future.

Evaluation Report: JLN Community of Practice on Scaling e-Consultations

Following the 2020 Joint Learning Network’s Learning Exchange on Patient Pathways and Pandemics: COVID-19 and Beyond, led by Aceso Global, a technical team was launched to focus on implementing and scaling up E-consultations at the primary health care (PHC) level. The CoP was designed to foster practical learning by accompanying implementation in an “implementer” country, Malaysia, which had previously launched an E-consultation initiative during the pandemic and wanted to improve and expand it further. Technical facilitators and country participants provided support and learnings. This mixed methods evaluation aimed to understand how real-time implementation within a technical team supported Malaysia’s preparation for and implementation of the E-consultation extension initiatives.

Global Landscape: Fiscal Space for Health

May 28, 2020

Public financing in the health sector is an essential component for countries working to implement universal health coverage (UHC). Unfortunately, the reality that many low- and middle-income countries currently face are health systems that are inefficiently funded through high levels of out-of-pocket spending. As demographics shift and the burden of chronic disease management rises, countries […]
