7 behaviours for effective development cooperation

For countries that receive external development assistance, adhering to effective development cooperation principles is still the most effective way to ensure coordination around health systems strengthening. The seven behaviours are critical areas where international development partners need to change in order to accelerate progress towards universal health coverage:

  • Provide well-coordinated technical assistance
  • Support south-to-south and triangular cooperation
  • Use one information and accountability platform
  • Harmonize and align with national procurement and supply systems
  • Harmonize and align with national financial management systems
  • Record all funds for health in the national budget
  • Support a single national health strategy

UHC2030 continues to pay particular attention to country contexts where the alignment and coordination of international development partners around country leadership and systems is critical but not a given, particularly in post-conflict and fragile contexts. These principles are anchored in country ownership and guide the actions of all partners towards more effective and aligned efforts towards HSS and thereby UHC.
