The World Bank's joint approaches to Health Systems Strengthening (HSS)

Since May 2009, The World Bank, GAVI Alliance and The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, together with the World Health Organization have been developing joint approaches to health system strengthening (HSS) based on the principles of greater aid effectiveness agreed in Paris and Accra and reflected in the International Health Partnership. This work is in response to a call by the High Level Task Force on Innovative International Financing for Health Systems to get ‘more health for the money’ in part through establishing a Joint Funding Platform for Health Systems Strengthening.
