Strengthening Community-Led Health Systems

Strengthening community health systems is the only pathway towards attaining SDG 3 and ensuring health and well-being for all. This dialogue provides a platform for health sector practitioners and experts to share best practices on applying community-led development (CLD) in the health sector, discuss obstacles, and develop pathways for decolonizing global health.
