GFF’s course Managing Markets for Health (MM4H): A Core Course for Health Policy Practitioners is delivered through instructor-led learning and self-study, and is targeted at health policy practitioners working in low- and middle-income countries. It introduces participants to the Managed Markets for Health (MM4H) approach for systematically analysing, designing and implementing policies to steer private actors to contribute to sustained health and equity outcomes.
The course has been designed and is delivered by world-leading experts on private sector health policy with a mix of academic and practical experience. Faculty will guide you through concepts and case studies that showcase the challenges of implementing policies to bring about change in a health market system. For those with unreliable internet connections, course material can be downloaded. The course is instructed in English but all the materials will also be available in French.
The online course will be followed by a face-to-face workshop for a limited number of individuals, in which multi-stakeholder teams will be guided to put the learning from the online modules to more practical use in defining specific private sector engagement strategies suited to their country context.
