Future Health Systems is a research consortium working to improve access, affordability and quality of health services for the poor. We are a partnership of leading research institutes from across the globe working in a variety of contexts: in low-income countries (Bangladesh, Uganda), middle-income countries (China, India) and fragile states (Afghanistan) to build resilient health systems for the future. After a successful first five-year phase from 2006-2011 (see our success stories), we are entering a new six-year phase of research, funded mainly by UK aid.

Future Health Systems

Preliminary lessons from the Maternal and Neonatal Implementation for Equitable Systems Study (MANIFEST) being implemented by the Makerere University School of Public Health in eastern Uganda have started attracting attention from the country’s Health ministry.

This was manifested this month when the FHS Uganda Team Leader Dr Elizabeth Ekirapa-Kiracho presented early implementation lessons from the study to the ministry’s maternal and child health technical working group.

Reacting to the presentation, ministry officials requested the study team to furnish them with the challenges that community health workers, also known as Village Health Teams (VHTs), are finding with the registers which complements the health management information system data.

In her presentation, Dr Ekirapa-Kiracho, said MANIFEST had observed that the VHT register was complicated and needed to be simplified, given the low level of education for most of the community health workers.
