JLN Network Manager
 

The current COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be devastating for health systems globally. To slow the spread of the virus and to reduce its toll, country leaders must manage strong systems-focused, multi-sectoral coordination, planning, and monitoring. To support countries, Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN) and the Health Systems Strengthening Accelerator (Accelerator) facilitated a year-long learning collaborative to help country leaders learn from each other on various topics, including how to create and manage the cross-sectoral teams to mount a coordinated response to the pandemic, developing pandemic/epidemic preparedness and response strategies, and strengthening coordination across sectors and across different levels of government to ensure a prompt and effective response.

Yet rehabilitation is often underprioritized in countries’ health systems and UHC strategies. In early 2022, the Health Systems Strengthening Accelerator is partnering with the JLN to launch a webinar that will bring together UHC and rehabilitation leaders to exchange country experiences with rehabilitation, including how (or whether) it is integrated in service delivery, conversations around UHC, and COVID-19 pandemic responses.
