Excerpt
The demand for more and better tools and methods to assess health systems has been a constant theme in health development since before Alma Ata. Opinions Vary as to what information is most needed to irnprove decisionmaking, and the focus of available assessment tools extends from the policy process and the political and econornic context within which the health sector operates, to the quality and quantity of services and the impact of a range Of interventions on health status. The search for a box of magic bullets that will provide clear and concise answen and sign posts to better health continues unabated. What then are the e├žsential ingredients of a good assessrnent? Do we have the wherewithal to carry out these assessments? To ensure their use? And who are 'we' in this process? Health systems managers, researchers. consultants, donors? Partners or inspectors? This document has been prepared to take stock of a range of currently available tools and rnethods to review al1 or part of the health systern. What tools do we have? What do we know about them? What is their track record? Where are the gaps? Are the key problems about the quality of tools or about their scope? Or are tools in any event only part of the solution? Where do capacity and comrnitrnent to use available tools corne in? What is needed in addition to developing tools and making them available?
