DGH drives multi-stakeholder health system policy engagement to improve transparency, information sharing, consensus building, and shared responsibility among actors at different levels across sectors. We engage actors and decision-makers in the health commodity supply chain, including entities that plan, source, fund, and distribute products and manage associated information and finances, identifying opportunities where public and private sector parties can work together to increase access to high quality life-saving commodities and improve efficiency of the health system.

The strategic objective of the Policy Engagement Program is to contribute to sound policies, programs and practices that enhance health system efficiency.

The areas of focus include:

  • Health policy formulation
  • Development and evaluation of policies, strategies and technical guidelines
  • Health policy think tank
  • Using multi-stakeholder engagement to translate research into policy

The key activities of the Policy Engagement Program are:

  1. Undertake a mapping of key health system stakeholder institutions;
  2. Develop and roll-out a communications and advocacy strategy;
  3. Develop and disseminate research reports, policy briefs, fact sheets and other advocacy materials targeting different health system actors, partners and stakeholders;
  4. Convene policy dialogue meetings, and other information-exchange, networking and discussion platforms.
