Capacity building for health systems strengthening

Nossal Institute for Global Health, in collaboration with UNICEF; facilitated a skills building session on health systems capacity building at the 5th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Liverpool, UK yesterday.

In the session participants had the opportunity to build their capacity in health systems strengthening by engaging in an interactive simulation - with the guidance of senior Nossal Institute and UNICEF health systems experts.
