Will localizing public health systems improve health outcomes? The Urban Institute hosted an expert roundtable event in June 2014 to try and answer this question, bringing together technical experts, practitioners, funders and researchers to highlight opportunities for improving health outcomes at the local level.

The post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals are increasingly focused on “inclusive development,” an effort to ensure that resources for social welfare reach poor, marginalized and base-of-the-pyramid communities. This awareness presents an opportunity to better localize health interventions and strengthen global health outcomes by bringing together the knowledge, resources and expertise of two growing practice areas: public health services and decentralized local governance. But there are significant gaps in today’s research. The group identified key opportunities and challenges in developing these local health systems, as well as shared priorities for new research.
