Having taken on the role of
assisting with the stewardship of health systems, it is important
for WHO itself to:
- clarify these interactions;
- demonstrate their role in
improving health systems and increasing the responsiveness of
- systematize the positive dimensions
of new styles of governance and participation within health systems.
The technical and policy analysis
and debate that WHO offers remains academic unless it is rooted
within national health and political systems and regional and
global institutions in and beyond the health sector.
