Promoting Strong Civil Society and Empowering Communities

Improving access to high-quality health workers and sexual and reproductive health commodities, while also advocating for good governance and equitable health financing, is challenging. It requires a vibrant and influential civil society and network of health stewards (leaders in healthcare facilities, communities and countries) to initiate discussion and reform. Together, these individuals and organisations have the potential to act as watchdogs—to hold the private and public sectors to account—and to advocate for stronger health systems, share their expert knowledge in an effort to shape health policy, and represent the voices of fellow citizens who are unable to realise their right to health.

To this end, the HSA Partnership works with partners in Sub-Saharan Africa to develop and strengthen the skills, processes and resources of civil society actors and key health stewards across the region.
