Health Systems and Population Health
Health Systems and Population Health:
Access to basic affordable healthcare remains a dream for some people living in rural and remote communities within the sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) region. Most countries in SSA failed to achieve the health-related MGDs and recent evidence shows again that most countries in the region are not on track to meet the Sustainable Development Goals targets especially on Reproductive, Maternal and Child Health (RMCH) and Universal Health Coverage (UHC). The fast emergence of Non-communicable diseases in a region where the prevalence of infectious diseases are still very high has further compounded the health and development challenges of countries in SSA. Although governments and other national and multinational organizations have progressively deployed interventions to help address the situation, health systems and population-level factors continue to constrain the supply and use of critical healthcare services required for improving the health and wellbeing of deprived communities. ASOLI works collaboratively with relevant institutions through implementation research, innovations and advocacy to contribute to strengthening health systems and engender local communities’ support and utilization of healthcare.
