ARK foundation is conducting multiple researches to strengthen health service delivery in Bangladesh, funded by UKAid. ARK, from its experiences working at Upazila Health Complexes and Community Clinics (CC), believes that, responsiveness of both supply and demand side is crucial for ensuring quality health care at Community, Upazila and District levels. We are aware of many challenges related to health system and service delivery, however, we need to find out feasible solutions for short, medium and long term to mitigate the challenges. This requires continuous engagement and commitment of all relevant actors to work in a coordinated way to achieve the stated goals.
Against this backdrop, ARK Foundation, in collaboration with Health Economics Unit of Health Services Division, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, and with the technical support of University of Leeds, UK and UKAid, organised a policy dialogue with senior level policy makers, service delivery personnel, development partners, academia and researchers on 29th March, 2018. The dialogue primarily focused on strengthening health service delivery in the context of achieving universal health coverage.
Objective of the dialogue
The objectives of the dialogue were to share the learning from COMDIS-HSD research carried out in Bangladesh, assess the present state of service delivery and apprise the options for future course in order to move progressively to the planned goal of universal health coverage.
