A Growing Body of Global UHC Knowledge
For JLN country members, the process of practitioner-to-practitioner learning is as important as the end knowledge products they co-develop over the course of learning collaboratives.
Through a combination of in-person meetings, webinars and discussion boards, members exchange tacit knowledge, expertise and experiences around specific challenges to co-produce a range of new knowledge products, such as step-by-step guides and self-assessment tools. These tools, available globally as international public goods, can be adapted by countries to create solutions for implementing UHC reforms specific to their contexts.
“The JLN uses a peer-to-peer method to identify challenges in the health sector and work collaboratively to develop a solution to the problem. I have enjoyed the practical hands-on problem-solving approach used by the network. Such learning stays with you for good.”
Deputy Director of Health Financing at the National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Nigeria
