Beyond the Building Blocks: Integrating Community Roles into Health Systems Frameworks to Achieve Health for All

Publish Date: May 2019
Author: MCSP and Partners

This paper articulates the need for dedicated human resources and quality services at the community level; it places strategies for organizing and mobilizing social resources in communities in the context of systems for health; it situates health information as one ingredient of a larger block dedicated to information, learning and accountability; and it recognizes societal partnerships as critical links to the public health sector. This framework makes explicit the oft-neglected investment needs for community health and aims to inform efforts to situate community health within national health systems and global guidance to achieve health for all.
