The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) commissioned Oxford Policy Management to study how to improve the ability of low-income countries to learn from, and act on, the successes and failures of other countries’ health systems. This project has developed recommendations for the BMGF on how they can target their investment to achieve this goal over the period 2018–2022. As part of my remit as the head of communications, I developed the brand identity and website for the programme, and produced all communications products to disseminate the processes and findings. The project’s recommendations have been made publicly available in various formats so that the output can be a global public good for other funding agencies, policymakers, and researchers to build on.

Learning for Action Across Health Systems is a project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and implemented by Oxford Policy Management.



What is Learning for Action Across Health Systems, why was it commissioned, and what key recommendations came out of it? A short animation talks us through the approach, methodology and content of the project.

Community Health, Global Knowledge: Experiences from Uganda

This documentary chronicles our journey to Uganda, where we met with community health workers across the country to hear their voices regarding the next steps in community health. The journey was part of a wider project to understand how lessons spread between countries: how can one country learn from another as it builds and strengthens its health system? This question was posed to us by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in a bid to improve its own understanding and that of other international donors on what it could do to facilitate learning for action across health systems.
