Country Leadership and Commitment
Country-led and country-driven joint learning are at the heart of the JLN’s model. The network thrives on its membership of committed policymakers and practitioners who steer, lead and take part in learning exchanges that target real-world challenges that countries encounter as they strive toward UHC. A central role is played by “country core groups” or CCGs – formed of decision-makers from institutions in the country influential in UHC reforms – who channel their country’s learning priorities into the network and the global learnings from the network back into their country, driving the creation and use of tested practical knowledge to tackle their UHC challenges.

JLN’s Growing Country Commitment
Over the last three years, eight JLN member countries formed country core groups and converted from “associate” to “full members” to strengthen their link with the network, enriching the network’s joint learning with more UHC experiences and lessons to share. New full JLN members: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Liberia, Mexico, Mongolia, Senegal, South Korea and Sudan.
“I really love the way the JLN is member driven. It is not the coordinators who tell us what collaborative [to create]. The collaborative is based on enough of us coming up with a common problem that needs a solution.”
