Welcome to the section of the website dedicated to people who are new to IHP+.  In the About section, you can read more about who we are, what we do and why we do it. Here, you can find general information about IHP+ and information about joining.

IHP+ is a group of partners around the world committed to improving the health of citizens in developing countries. There are currently 59 partners in the IHP+ of which 33 are developing country governments. Joining IHP+ means a commitment to work with all other stakeholders involved in health financing, planning and implementation of a single national health strategy. This includes national governments, civil society organizations and international development agencies. All parties agree to work together in new ways, and their efforts are based on putting the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness into practice.

Want to join IHP+?

IHP+ is open to all developing country and developed country governments, development agencies and civil society organizations. When a new developing country or development agency signs the Global Compact, an initial orientation usually takes place with the IHP+ Core Team, based on the following issues:

  • Benefits and commitments in the IHP+ Global Compact
  • Ways to use the political leverage of IHP+ to improve alignment and address obstacles to progress
  • Orientation on the tools and approaches that have been developed through IHP+, and whether, when and how they might be useful to a country or agency.
