Synthesis paper on health systems governance webinar series on frameworks and missing links

This background document provides a synthesis of the key messages and issues raised during three interactive webinars hosted by the Health Systems Governance Collaborative. The webinars identified three key ‘missing links’ that hold us back from advancing health systems Governance: Recognizing institutions; recognizing governance as a practice; recognizing agency.

These three key perspectives, to be further explored at the Bellagio meeting, are outlined and reflective of the presentations and discussions that took place during the webinars.
