Unpicking Power and Politics for Transformative Change: Towards Accountability for Health Equity. Workshop Report

This workshop brought together over 80 activists, researchers, public health practitioners and policy makers

Abstract

While ‘accountability’ has become an increasingly popular buzzword in health systems debates and health service delivery, it has multiple – and contested – meanings.

From 19-21 July 2017, the Institite of Development Studies (IDS) brought together over 80 activists, researchers, public health practitioners and policy makers to examine critically the forces that shape accountability in health systems, from local to global levels. Our partners in convening this workshop, as part of a new IDS programme on ‘Accountability for Health Equity’ were the Unequal Voices project, Future Health Systems, the Open Society Foundations, the Impact Initiative and Health Systems Global.

This is the workshop report of the presentations and discussions.
