What role does civil society play in strengthening accountability over policy in health systems?

As we saw in the previous module, decentralization policies and increased public demand for accountability in public institutions have increased pressure for wider participation in policy and planning. Enhancing policy accountability and partnerships raises new questions for health systems.

How inclusive are the structures and processes for policy accountability?

How transparent are the procedures by which they operate?

What are the entitlements and norms that inform dialogue between different interest groups on policy matters?

How are competing claims arbitrated?
