Governance & Stewardship Round Table Discussions

March 2012

Round Table Discussions

The Hub has hosted a round table discussion on the governance and stewardship of mixed health systems, exchanging ideas from Australia and other OECD countries around the experiences and challenges of countries in the Asia Pacific region.

These discussions included key insights and presentations from Kabir Sheikh (Public Health Foundation of India), Abby Bloom (University of Sydney), John Grundy (Nossal staff based in Cambodia), Beena Varghese and Rajashree Panicker (Public Health Foundation of India) and Paul Dugdale (Australian National University) as well as key Nossal staff, Krishna Hort, Brendan Allen, Peter Annear and Prarthna Dayal.

Participants gained a new understanding of the multi-dimensional nature of governance in health systems, the relationship between governance and stewardship, and how current Hub studies could contribute to governance and stewardship in LMIC's.

Innovative ideas and concepts were developed for further studies and analysis under the Hub program of country level work in Indonesia and Vietnam, with a view to developing a synthesis report on the implications for governance and stewardship.

This landmark visit forged a renewed commitment to collaborative research and appreciation of the intellectual stimulus and development that accompanies the exchange of ideas and experience among researchers from different countries.
