About HSS and Why it Matters

Strong #healthsystems are powerful! They prevent, detect, and respond to disease & ultimately promote well-being and save lives. #careforHSS #MomandBaby

#Healthsystems matter! - It's all the people, institutions, resources & activities whose primary purpose is to promote, restore, and/or maintain health. #careforHSS

Working with countries to build strong health systems helps ultimately improve & maintain resilience and security for the U.S. & around the world. #careforHSS #USAIDTransforms

Strong #healthsystems are necessary to introduce, scale ↑ and sustain high-impact #RMNCAH interventions. #careforHSS

Sustainable #healthsystems do not only care for people when sick, they make smart investments to keep people healthy in the future! #careforHSS

Moving HSS Forward

To improve #RMNCAH, we must review and improve policies, organizational structures & behaviors that drive #healthsystems performance. #careforHSS

A concerted effort to address #healthsystem issues is vital to reach many of the #GlobalGoals targets. #careforHSS #EWECisME

Partnerships are critical to improving #healthsystems. The challenges are so big we cannot address them in isolation! #careforHSS #EWECisME

Having a #healthsystems lens is critical to improving service-delivery. #MomandBaby need quality, essential services! #careforHSS

A big goal for all - sustainable health financing that is designed to help people access quality, effective health services without undue financial hardship #careforHSS

Work is needed to stop the health worker crisis! 83 countries are unable to meet the basic threshold of 23 skilled health professionals per 10K people. #careforHSS #HealthWorkersCount

Globally, there's a gap of 7.2M professional health workers and rising. Human capacity development in pre-service and in-service training, motivation, & performance management matters! #careforHSS

Millions of women and children could be saved, if they had access to simple, essential and affordable medicines, medical devices, & health supplies. #careforHSS #MomandBaby

Strong leadership and governance is the foundation of #healthsystems - effective oversight, & accountability can help countries be resilient and self-reliant! #careforHSS #USAIDTransforms

Strong health systems depend on reliable health data to inform decisions that improve performance. That's why it's critical to invest in #HSS. #careforHSS
