dc.description Published version of the final report of the Health Systems Knowledge Network submitted to WHO in June 2007. en
dc.description.abstract The report discusses important health system features and actions that can address health inequity. Health systems promote health equity when their design and management specifically consider the needs of marginalised populations, including women, the poor, and groups who experience stigma and discrimination. Enabling social action by these groups and the civil society organisations supporting them can generate preferential health benefits and strengthen health systems. Key conclusions and recommendations of the Health Systems Knowledge Network’s final report are presented, drawing on two years of discussion. en
