Health Systems

August 26, 2017

The public health and global health community talk about strengthening health systems. In this video, Dr Greg Martin provides a brief overview of what health systems are and how it is that the building blocks of health systems fit together.

Health systems are made up of 1) leadership, management and governance, 2) health finance, 3) human resources, 4) inventory, 5) infrastructure and 6) health intelligence. If the public health community is going to make improvements to health systems in poorer countries then we need to have a clear understanding of what they are. To improve health systems we need to apply what we understand about epidemiology and health economics to national programmes.

Health economics

July 29, 2017

Global health and public health practitioners use Health Economics to better understand the decisions that get made that affect health. Calculating the DALYs averted or QALYs gained for per dollar spent, for example, can help NGOs and Governments decide which health interventions to invest in. These sorts of cost utility and cost effectiveness (economic evaluations) help with decision making.
