GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE FOR GLOBAL CHANGE

Partnership for Technical Assistance to Implementation of China Rural Health Project

Early this year the Chinese Government announced a major rural health reform policy, which includes a substantial increase in public funding and measures to improve the performance of the providers of health services. It is encouraging 40 counties to test innovative ways to implement this policy, through a project funded by a World Bank credit and DFID grant. The IDS, in partnership with Health Partners International and YozuMannion, has been awarded a contract to establish a Resource Centre, which will provide project implementers with access to international experience and expertise. The Resource Centre will organise visits by project implementers to other countries to learn from their experiences, training courses on key aspects of rural health development and short visits by international experts. One major challenge of the resource centre will be to find practical approaches to facilitate efficient learning by Chinese policy-makers and health system managers from international experience.
