WHO and World Bank to examine effect of global initiatives

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank will jointly examine the effect of global disease-specific health initiatives in low- and middle-income countries. The move is after critics argued that they (the organizations?) were eroding already weak health systems. The two organisations will work with country officials, academic and research institutions, global health initiatives and civil society organisations to address whether global health initiatives are weakening systems or if health systems are preventing the progress of the initiatives and undermining investments. The collaboration will examine and combine the strengths of different approaches of initiatives to achieve better results from funding and improve health. There are currently more than 80 global health initiatives, including the GAVI Alliance, PEPFAR and the Global Fund.
