Strengthening health system governance

How does governance affect health policies and, as a consequence, healthcare systems? Which are the key aspects to control in order to implement health system governance decisions? Given the challenges that health care systems face today, a proper governance is crucial to shape their capacity to cope with increasingly complex issues. Strengthening health system governance: better policies, stronger performance (Open University Press, 2015 – http://www.euro.who.int/en/about-us/partners/observatory/publications/studies/strengthening-health-system-governance-better-policies,-stronger-performance) analyses the topic by breaking it down into the TAPIC framework (Transparency, Accountability, Participation, Integrity, Capability) and by examining a range of case studies related to difficult health-policy issues.
