Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage
The Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN) operates as a community of practitioners and policymakers to share experiences, facilitate peer-to-peer learning, and develop practical knowledge products that countries can use to overcome the challenges they face along their journeys to implementing universal health coverage (UHC). Since its founding in 2010, the JLN has grown to serve 33 full and associate country members who work together to develop action-oriented resources that can be applied or adapted by other countries responding to similar UHC challenges.
In summer 2018, the JLN Steering Group selected MSH to serve the JLN in the role of Network Manager under a three-year grant agreement with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. As the Network Manager, MSH will support network coordination, management, and stewardship in close collaboration with the network's Steering Group, including the Gates Foundation and the World Bank, to support country members and respond to their needs. The JLN’s status as a global platform of, for, and by UHC leaders and its joint learning focus align directly with MSH’s mission to save lives and improve the health of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people by closing the gap between knowledge and action in public health.
