Systems thinking is essential to the LHSS Project’s work with governments to co-design and co-implement effective measures to strengthen country health systems. But what exactly do we mean by systems thinking?

In this episode, LHSS Technical Director Midori de Habich shares her well-honed understanding of systems thinking -- what it is, why it leads to more successful programs, and how to recognize when it is or is not needed. Following Ms. de Habich, LHSS-Colombia Chief of Party Miguel Pulido discusses how systems thinking is shaping the LHSS-Colombia program, which supports the Colombian government’s work to care for Venezuelan migrants and respond to COVID-19.

Health governance is foundational to strengthening health systems around the world, but it’s something that many development practitioners struggle to conceptualize. We acknowledge it as important, but we don’t always know how to influence it. In this episode, we’ll talk about why governance is so difficult, consider how to apply a governance lens, and learn from an example of HFG’s governance work in Vietnam.

As countries strive to achieve universal health coverage, they must implement health insurance systems or other types of financial protection programs that protect against financial risk and improve access to quality and affordable health care. In this episode, we introduce the major insurance models being implemented around the world, discuss some of the specific challenges LIMCs face, and learn about what two countries are doing to create an insurance system that is equitable, efficient, and financially sustainable.

The digital revolution can offer solutions to many health system constraints: increasing access to information in far flung villages, speeding information to decision-makers in real-time, giving over-burdened health workers tools for training, case management, and support; mobilizing communities to hold governments accountable for quality services. But how can development practitioners realize these positive outcomes? Find out in this episode.
