Health Governance and Finance
Health Governance and Finance Research is a recently formed research area that encompasses both a technical support and research agenda. Through the technical assistance activities, this research area works to support African countries and regional health agencies in their efforts to develop effective and sustainable responses to HIV and health. The aims of the research agenda are to investigate, review, and critically engage with key issues related to health governance, prioritisation and financing in Africa. Many countries in Africa are dealing with multiple health challenges, in a context of economic and financial uncertainty, and an increasingly fragmented system of global health actors, agendas, and processes. Strong governance and sustainable financing will be necessary to tackle these challenges moving forward, and to achieve greater equity in health. Our research covers regional health trends, health priorities and policy responses at country and regional levels, innovative financing for health, and the role of the global health architecture for health in Africa.
