Table 2 Is it Health System Strengthening?

From: Health system support and health system strengthening: two key facilitators to the implementation of ambulatory tuberculosis treatment in Uzbekistan

Criteria to distinguish between health system strengthening and support interventions
1. Do the interventions address policy and organizational constraints or strengthen relationships between the six WHO [57] building blocks of a health system (service delivery, health workforce, information, medical products, vaccines and technologies, financing, and leadership and governance)?
2. Will the interventions produce permanent systemic impact beyond the term of the project?
3. Are the interventions tailored to country-specific constraints and opportunities, with clearly defined roles for country institutions?
