How Can Health Systems Promote Social Protection?

The "Systems Thinking for District Health Systems (ST-DHS) initiative" has brought disruptive approaches and methodologies to districts in three very different countries (Botswana, Pakistan and Timor-Leste), including fragile and post-conflict settings. The driving force in the current situation for the ongoing innovation process is an online community of practice across these three countries. Representatives from research institutions, district health management teams from the three countries, as well as from the technical support centre hosted at Swiss TPH will present the approaches and tools used to bring systems thinking closer to district health systems. Finally, we will introduce the ongoing design and launch of a global community of systems thinkers, the Systems Thinking Accelerator.
