USAID Vision for Health System Strengthening 2030
“When we strengthen health systems in far regions of the world, we reduce the risk of future pandemics that can threaten our people and our economy.”
— President Joseph R. Biden


USAID’s Health System Strengthening Vision 2030 draws upon the progress over the past decade and the new challenges that have arisen, while reaffirming USAID’s longer-term goal of worldwide resilient health systems. The vision recognizes that integrated, systems-based approaches for strengthening health systems are now more critical than ever due to COVID-19 and other pandemics and asserts that:

  • All people and institutions including communities, health workers, leaders and policy makers should be engaged in HSS efforts.
  • Reliable links between the public and private sectors, including communities, lead to stronger health systems.
  • Health systems are resilient when they are able to adjust resources, policy and focus to varying degrees to respond to challenges.
  • Locally led, inclusive HSS efforts that account for social and behavior change lead to more sustainable results and greater self-reliance.
  • Locally designed approaches take into account the unique conditions of country conditions and often result in higher quality health care reaching the most disadvantaged and vulnerable.

Health Systems Strengthening Learning Agenda

Complementing and operationalizing the Vision for Health System Strengthening 2030 is the Health Systems Strengthening Learning Agenda, which aims to strengthen health systems programming by providing a platform for updating or generating, synthesizing, disseminating, and utilizing evidence related to critical HSS learning questions. The learning agenda questions were collaboratively developed with a range of HSS stakeholders, and align with key strategies promoted in the Vision, including questions related to incorporating systems practice in HSS, how to work across multiple health system strengthening areas, and how to collaborate with new partners to create high-performing health systems. This document both guides and is informed by USAID HSS programming. USAID Missions and partners should consider how programs can contribute to learning in the key question areas, which will strengthen the HSS evidence base and contribute to USAID's global leadership in HSS.
