Governance is an overarching health systems function which is about “ensuring strategic policy frameworks exist and are combined with effective oversight, coalition-building, regulation, attention to system-design and accountability”. It equally applies to specific health system components as well as aspects of health financing. Yet, governance of the purchasing of health services has received little attention in either research or policy practice, despite its importance.

The project will be composed of a series of webinars facilitated by the WHO Health Financing Team and Results for Development. Each webinar will highlight a specific topic relating to the governance of strategic purchasing, in line with the WHO analytical framework on the same subject which is available here.

Webinars will aim at illustrating these aspects with specific country cases based on your experiences and with your contributions.

Participants to this project have no deliverable to produce. They are expected to actively participate to the series of webinars. The discussions will be aligned with the framework for assessing governance arrangements for purchasing which is currently under development by WHO. Sessions will facilitate collective learning through exchanging experiences from different countries and through synthesizing learnings across the series of webinars.


This group is open to policy makers, practioners, experts and researchers interested in strategic purchasing and governance in the health sector. We look for country teams as well as individuals working on purchasing or employed in purchasing agencies that are interested in sharing their experiences related to specific governane arrangements in their country. The group will be facilitated by Danielle Bloom and Aurélie Klein.
