With the participation of over 40 illustrious speakers and close to 150 health systems stakeholders in physical attendance and over 400 online attendees from across 20 countries, the event showcased the latest thinking and best practices involved in building resilient health systems.
The Conclave was designed as a high-level summit that saw participation from multi-country functionaries from governments and development agencies, academia, health systems experts, and industry leaders. Sessions on important themes such as financial resilience, the need for good governance, the preparedness of public health systems and providers, the need for robust supply chains, and the role of health information made up the two-day event. A detailed agenda and the profiles of speakers can be found here. Session-wise videos will be made available on GLC4HSR’s YouTube channel.
The GLC4HSR was launched by ACCESS Health International with support from The Rockefeller Foundation on 11th March 2022. Its core purpose is to harness collaborative action to make health systems resilient and responsive to the social and health needs of all people at all times. The event marked the completion of one year since the launch of the GLC4HSR.
The GLC4HSR has taken up several thematic learning journeys. These center around the themes of leadership and governance, surveillance, healthcare provisioning, health financing, health supplies, and health information system, in the context of the rising incidence of health threats and the need to build strong and resilient health systems to prevent these threats and to enable them to mount rapid and effective responses.
The sessions shared the learnings from these thematic journeys, presenting country-level assessment of health systems, initiating dialogues around the health systems assessment framework, and deliberating upon cross-country learnings to identify practical policy solutions to build health systems resilience.
The sessions were designed keeping in view the guiding principles of knowledge co-creation and reciprocal learning to achieve the core objective of nurturing a learning culture across health systems. The sessions were curated on the premise that a learning culture leads to the right policies, strategies, and actions aimed at securing people’s health.
