Associate Professor at Harvard's Kennedy School Matt Andrews speaks on potential frameworks for governance in health systems. He is introduced by Francis Fukuyama, Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow at CDDRL.



Governance is exceptionally complex in health systems. Part of the complexity lies in the differences between these systems; especially across countries. Differences make it difficult to assess governance conditions in a comparative sense, and call for a framework to think about this issue. This talk discusses a potential framework based on the idea that governance mechanisms vary depending on relationships in systems and the problems that systems face. The framework is applied to different countries to show how different health sector governance regimes might be required for different contexts.
