Beyond Scaling Up: What's it all about?

Future Health Systems

BY KATE HAWKINS, INSTITUTE OF DEVELOPMENT STUDIES

A typical hospital sceneOn the 18 November, at the Global Symposium, we will be running a session entitled "Beyond Scaling Up". This session will present findings and conclusions of a stream of work jointly organised by the Future Health Systems Consortium and the STEPS Centre.

The session will explore lessons from implementing large scale changes to health systems aimed at increasing access to important health services, particularly by the poor. These will include a study of the experience of a large donor-funded project for strengthening primary health care services in Northern Nigeria, the experience of the Ministry of Health of Brazil in extending a decentralised, rights-based health system to meet the special needs of indigenous people and the Chinese experience with the management of health system reform in the context of rapid economic and social change.
