Building Resilient Health Systems

Integrated approaches are needed to deliver healthcare effectively to individuals, to mount vigorous public health responses to crises, and to confront new and longstanding global health and development challenges. Resilient health systems are those that stand ready to do all of that. To get there, we need to break out of the silos that tend to dominate structures of care, and develop effective modes of coordination and communication among donor countries and other stakeholders. What does a resilient health system look like? How do we build strong, unified health systems that engage all players and are able to overcome resource, workforce, technology, and other challenges?
