Leith Greenslade
Recording of the 23 May WHA Child Survival Action event - really worth listening to what the LMIC health leaders said - https://pmnch.who.int/news-and-events/events/item/2022/05/23/partner-events/child-survival-action-a-roundtable-for-accelerated-progress-towards-2030
Eden Ahmed Mdluli
Oh, thank you!
Sita Strother
Eden Ahmed Mdluli
TY, Sita!
John Borrazzo
When I listened to the recording of the event, beyond the critical and pretty universal take-away messages highlighted today, I was also impressed with the number of ministers and senior-level ministry representatives who highlighted the threats from climate change-related extreme events (esp droughts and floods) to the resilience of their health systems and to health outcomes.
Patricia Jodrey
@John +1
Thank you for the presentations. why does it seem that adolescent health is not mentioned in the health cycle?
Leith Greenslade
This comment at the WHA event from Tanzanian Health Minister was echoed by other LMIC health leads - how will this effort we are talking about today take this massive issue on? “While we appreciate and acknowledge our partners support in the health sector in Tanzania through supporting various vertical programs focusing on specific diseases, what we would like and expect is for our partners and the global community to limit the vertical funding streams for with a specific disease focus and redirect these to strengthening the entire primary healthcare system.”
Anne Detjen
@Ayebo thank you - good point
Rory Nefdt UNICEF HQs
Multi-laterals such as UNICEF has a mixed approach to funding governments, on-budget funding, funding to MoH, to basket accounts in MoHs, funding to subnational (e.g. Counties, Districts), to NGOs and direct funding (e.g. paying for venues, paying DSA directly to participants, providing commodities directly). Varies across countries. So all very complex!
Rory Nefdt UNICEF HQs
SWAPs is important - Develop plans at national and subnational level - in light of CSAP objectives - is one way forward. Supported by multiple funding sources!
Caleb El-Bumba
Thank you @John
Rory Nefdt UNICEF HQs
In the government Institutionalized planning and budgeting systems
Thank you for the response
Jeanne Rideout
Although the ideal situation would be less restricted funding, we have examples of governments that have leveraged vertical programs to build strong, integrated systems, such as the Ethiopian Health Extension Program.
Rory Nefdt UNICEF HQs
In each country main groups to explore engaging CSAP with are 1. The national Health Donor partners Working Group to coordinate as discussed by Kathleen amongst donors and link with MoHs. 2. The Child Health TWG (or equivalent) at MoH usua;;y with MoH leading the partnership committee.
Leith Greenslade
Why don't we pull together a list of case studies of LMICs that have successfully leveraged vertical health programs to strengthen integrated child health services.
Bernadette Daelmans
Greetings to all. Exemplars in Global Health might be an avenue for pursuing Leith' suggestion.
Ajay Gambhir
good issue of equity & quality . This can be done with involvement of pvt/ NGo & prof bodies
Kathleen Hill
To the first discussion question, would it be useful to undertake a mapping of in-country CHTF members as a mechanism for promoting, coordinating and monitoring CSAP goals and strategies at country level. Presumably, CHTF members at country level are strongly engaged in national and subnational child health TWGs (or broader RMNCH TWGs depending on the country)
Ajay Gambhir
Local adaptation is important for best output as health are dlivery is differentin different counries
Patricia Jodrey
Thanks for the presentation. A lot to think about and look forward to.
John Borrazzo
@Kathleen Hill I like the idea of mapping current CHTF members as Child Survival Action rolls out.
