IHP+ activities from the past year are documented in this latest annual report from the IHP+ Core Team.

IHP+ Core Team Report 2013-2014

The latest IHP+Core Team Report 2013-2014 documents activities at international and country levels. 

Here are the highlights of the work of IHP+ during the past year:

  • The heads of all major international health agencies committed to intensified action on seven critical behaviours. These behaviours reflect IHP+ principles. Four of the seven behaviours featured as priorities across reviews in four countries: being on budget; financial management; information and accountability platforms; technical assistance.

  • The heads of agencies agreed to substantially reduce global health reporting requirements.

  • IHP+ launched the new Financial Management Working Group.

  • A review of south-south and triangular cooperation in health commissioned by IHP+ found that existing initiatives are not well-known nor experience sufficiently shared between countries or between development partners; there are also significant regional differences in experience.

  • A review of the Health Policy Action Fund southern civil society grants programme, supported by IHP+, found that the grants have stimulated greater civil society engagement in national policy processes.

  • IHP+ JANS and compact guidance were updated.

  • IHP+ introduced new governance and oversight arrangements, which include a Steering Committee and Reference Group.
