USAID’s Health Finance and Governance (HFG) project and the Joint Learning Network invite you to join us for a webinar on Wednesday, May 3rd, on engaging non-state actors in governing quality of care.
Non-state actors have the potential to contribute to governing quality — providing technical inputs on policy development, monitoring health service delivery, and promoting accountability in the health system—but they are often not well engaged or effectively involved in achieving the national health agenda.
As steward of the health sector, the government may use several instruments and strategies to engage the non-state actors, including policy and dialogue, information exchange, regulation, finance and production of health resources. The government can also promote self-regulation and accountability in the health sector to ensure delivery of quality care.
