Gareth Williams is leading the political economy analyses of health security systems in Côte d’Ivoire and Niger for the DAI implemented Tackling Deadly Diseases in Africa Programme. Starting in December 2019 during the programme’s inception phase, he has continued to support the team on PEA. This is a five year programme aiming to strengthen health systems in six countries (Cameroon, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Niger and Uganda) to improve disease preparedness, surveillance and response. Gareth continues to provide training and analytical support for the project team.
The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) commissioned The Policy Practice to undertake a political economy analysis of service delivery and local governance in Chad's southern Moyen Chari province. The study was delivered in collaboration with IFRA and has been used by SDC to identify programming opportunities.
