Pathways to progress in health: lessons from leading performers

5 June 2014 10:00 to 12:30 (GMT +1 (BST))

Venue: Overseas Development Institue, 203 Blackfriars Road, London and streamed online

As the Millennium Development Goals draw to a close, there is increasing interest in taking stock and learning from countries seen as leading performers in diverse sectors, including health. Critical questions and topics to be addressed include examining:

– Which countries have made significant progress in improving health systems and access to services over the last few decades – often against the odds?

– What alignment of factors has helped to achieve progress and what are the lessons we should draw from their experience?

– How can we apply these findings to inform debates around the post-2015 agenda, universal health coverage and the social determinants of health?

ODI’s Development Progress project seeks to better understand what’s working and why by exploring the determinants of progress, using evidence gathered from a series of case studies.

This panel discussion will launch and discuss the findings from four case studies exploring progress in:

– Tackling Neglected Tropical Diseases in Sierra Leone and Cambodia;

– Maternal health in Nepal; and

– Maternal and child health in Mozambique.

​Confirmed speakers include:

Andy Haines – Professor of Public Health & Primary Care, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Fiona Samuels – Research Fellow in Social Development and Health Dimension Lead, ODI

Dr Shilu Aryal – Senior consultant Obstetrician /Gynaecology, Ministry of Health and Population, Nepal
