The session will broadly describe the partnership, and then focus on the development effectiveness aspects of it, namely joint assessments, knowledge management, the successes and continued challenges in achieving better coordination around health systems strengthening, and examples of how UHC2030 can promote the use of research to strengthen health systems.
