Program Overview

The Joint Learning Agenda is a program where civil society with the leadership of two regional organizations -WACI Health and Impact Santé Afrique (ISA)- has come together with a consortium of global health initiatives (GHIs) —The Global Financing Facility, The Global Fund, The Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health, Gavi, and UHC 2030 to develop, deliver and support capacity strengthening on UHC Budget Advocacy and Accountability in Sub-Sahara Africa.

The program promotes a multi-stakeholder collaboration that, through constructive mechanisms, will hold governments and donors to account for the allocation and equitable use of funding for health.
This unique partnership leverages collaboration between the different GHIs’ agendas, such as the GAP, UHC agenda and COVID-19 response, and provides a coordinated, aligned and long-term support to Civil Society engagement in these agendas.

Why Support?

Civil Society organisations (CSOs) are playing a critical role in building a strong-equity focused and people-led movement for UHC.

 
Multiple strategies, guidelines, and other documents exist that emphasize the need for CSOs greater role in advocacy for accessible and quality health care, including through the active participation of civil society organisations (CSOs) in multi-stakeholder platforms.
With the challenge of Sub-Saharan African countries to meet the Abuja Declaration commitments (government expenditure on health should be equivalent to at least 5% of GDP and 15% of total government expenditure), the need for addressing resource mobilisation, and especially domestic resource mobilisation, is essential to achieve universal health coverage (UHC).
