Improving Population Health: What is the Role of Health Systems?

The hanging burden of disease requires health system to focus on promoting population health alongside their established role in treating illness. All parts of the health system must contribute by using resources more effectively and by recognizing the role of health systems as anchor institutions in their communities. Health systems also have a contribution to make in building partnerships for improving health with local governments, people and communities. This lecture will illustrate how this is being done in some jurisdictions and set out the challenges facing health system leaders in ‘turning around the oil tanker’.

As part of the North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (NAO) Lecture Series, we welcome Martin McKee on Thursday, July 6, 2017 from 9:00am-10:30am in HS 610 (Health Sciences Building, 155 College Street, Toronto) for a lecture on:

Access and Quality: The Performance of Health Systems Worldwide

In the 17 years since the World Health Report 2000, which controversially proposed measures of performance of 193 health systems worldwide, there have been enormous advances in the information available on health and disease worldwide, led by the Global Burden of Disease project. In this talk, Martin McKee will present new findings from the project, which have employed the concept of avoidable mortality and linked it to these new sources of data. He will discuss both the remaining challenges and the implications of these findings to researchers and policy decision-makers.
