Health systems strengthening course

View this article as a pdf

A health systems strengthening (HSS) course, originally developed to equip United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) staff by UNICEF with the University of Melbourne and the Nossal Institute for Global Health, is now open access. The course is aimed at middle and high-level health professionals, including health administrators and policy makers, doctors, nurses and others who work to shape health systems. Students explore the complexity of health systems and apply systems thinking to HSS in low- and middle-income country contexts. Students are taught to critique major health system frameworks, analyse health system inequities, and interrogate the evidence for HSS approaches. The course aims to equip learners with knowledge and skills to develop HSS interventions across areas such as health policy, health financing, human resources, supply chain management, quality of care and private sector engagement. The course is freely available and requires three hours of study per week for eight weeks. Find out more and sign up here.
