Lessons for strengthening district health systems from India and Uganda

Wednesday, May 30th, 9:00-10:00 am ET (Washington, D.C.)

For many health systems, the district level is where ‘the rubber hits the road’—where national-level policies and programs and local realities finally meet. As such, the district level is a great place to develop and spread feasible solutions to strengthen health systems.

Join us Wednesday, May 30th at 9am ET (Washington, D.C.) for a webinar about strengthening district health systems. Esther Karamagi, Chief of Party - Uganda, will present key learning from ASSIST’s work strengthening tuberculosis case notification at the district level in Uganda and Nigel Livesley, ASSIST Regional Director for South Asia, will present lessons from ASSIST’s work institutionalizing quality improvement at the district level in India to improve maternal and newborn health outcomes.

The discussion will be moderated by Mirwais Rahimzai, ASSIST Regional Director for East Africa (formerly COP in Uganda and Afghanistan and Deputy COP in India), with commentary provided by Seyoum Dejene, TB/HIV Advisor, and Estella Birabwa, Program Management Specialist for TB, from the USAID Uganda Mission.
