THE CHALLENGE

Under the leadership of the WHO, a collaborative learning program on strategic purchasing has been launched on Collectivity. More than 70 experts applied and are now part of the working group. The coordinators of the working group have decided to split this large group into several thematic groups. Each thematic group will be facilitated by experts in the area of interest and will be tasked with delivering a final knowledge product (e.g. a rapid assessment tool, an orientation note, an implementation research agenda…). 

YOUR CONTRIBUTION

With this flash consultation, we would like to collect opinions from the working group members on which priority issues should be dealt with by the thematic groups. Share with us your opinion on the most critical issues with strategic purchasing in your health system, your country or your region.  We invite you to provide two issues.

To structure your answer, you may want to use the rich material from the recent WHO meeting in Geneva. Check also these two blogposts on the role of purchasing agencies and of the health system stewards, and this third blog on the institutionalization of purchasing capacity.

THE DREAM TEAM

This flash consultation targets the 70+ members of the Collectivity Strategic Purchasing working group.
