We must foster socially accountable health and educational systems to advance universal health coverage and the WHO strategy on human resources for health. These goals can be achieved if changes take place, not only in educational institutions, but in the wider health system environment. Over the years, a number of organizations and institutions worldwide have promoted or implemented social accountability principles. This summit will foster synergistic action of the key players needed to amplify that change from the local to the global scale.
Engage with other health system stakeholders to help educational institutions become more socially accountable.
Facilitate the development of competencies that socially accountable health professionals should possess.
We are an international organization aiming to foster equitable community-oriented health services education, research, and policy. We bring together innovative health care organizations, universities, educational institutions, and individuals from all over the world, committed to contribute to the improvement of health in their communities.
