IDG Roundtable on localizing public health systems (June 2014)

The Urban Institute Center on International Development and Governance works in developing, transitioning and fragile countries to support transformative development interventions and to engage in evidence-based research. Our activities allow us to better understand how the public sector becomes strong enough to achieve economic growth and to sustainably provide key public services while behaving within constraints that assure voice and rights to citizens.
