Beginning in June 2017, the Makerere University School of Public Health (MakSPH), in collaboration with Future Health Systems, has been implementing a CSC project focusing on maternal and newborn health service delivery and utilization in six sub-counties in Kibuku district, Uganda. As one of its exit strategies, the project carried out a qualitative study that explored ways of involving political leaders in the CSC process to ensure its sustainability.
This Issue Brief identifies the following priority actions:
- Coordinate CSC activities and ensure that political leaders at all levels are involved in the implementation of these activities
- Advocate for the incorporation of CSC activities in the health facility, sub-county and district work plans and budgets
- Participate in the selection and training of CSC facilitators
