Advancing the Field
Local Capacity and Sustainability




The LHSS approach aligns with current thinking about delivering technical assistance in a way that embraces localization—appreciating the knowledge and experience of local actors and engaging them to lead effective, equitable, and sustainable actions for better health outcomes. The LHSS approach follows local priorities and works together with local actors to assess, create, and implement solutions to health system challenges. It acknowledges that the design and implementation of interventions must consider the local context, including enabling factors and risks posed by institutional aspects of power and politics.
