Thinking and Working Politically on Health Systems Resilience


The COVID-19 pandemic has severely tested the resilience of health systems in nearly every country of the world. However, some countries’ health systems have proven more resilient than others, and have been more effective in saving lives.

A new reflections paper prepared by The Policy Practice and the Thinking and Working Politically Community of Practice reflects on the political economy and governance factors that have affected health systems resilience and discusses how these can be given more attention in research and policy making.

The paper is based on the findings of a panel discussion held by the Community of Practice in February 2022 comparing the experience of Cameroon, Nepal and South Africa.
