New IHP+ videos of interviews with partners are now available to watch online. At the 4th IHP+ Country Health Teams Meeting, colleagues from Ministries of Health, civil society organizations and development partners spoke on camera about some of the benefits of being an IHP+ partner.

During the 4th IHP+ Country Health Teams meeting in Nairobi in December 2012, participants spoke on camera about some of the benefits of being an IHP+ partner. They identified some of the changes that have taken place in their countries or institutions and how this has changed the ways in which they work with each other:

  • Stakeholders are now working together with a newfound confidence.
  • As a result, they are better able to plan the national health sector strategy.
  • They are able to produce reliable and credible financial information in relation to health budgets.
  • One country mentioned a drop in corruption and moving up several positions in the global accountability index.
  • There is greater mutual accountability between different partners at national level.

“We used the developments of the IHP+ to guide us in developing our current health sector strategic plan,” said Sarah Biyakika, Ministry of Health in Uganda.
