National Health Strategy

A national health strategy is a document that outlines a country's vision, priorities, budgetary decisions, and course of action for improving and maintaining the health of its people. Such documents provide direction for improving health and are used for planning purposes. Ideally, any activities for strengthening health information systems (HIS) are mentioned in a country’s national health strategy.

Below are the national health strategies that MEASURE Evaluation located as of April 2017. Data collection to identify other national health strategies is ongoing. Please contact us if you are aware of updated or additional documents that can be added to this table.
