Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage


The Joint Learning Network (JLN) for Universal Health Coverage operates as a community of practitioners and policy makers to share experiences, facilitate peer-to-peer learning, and develop practical knowledge products that countries can use to overcome the challenges they face along their journeys to implementing universal health coverage (UHC). Since its founding in 2010, the JLN has grown to serve 34 full and associate country members who work together to develop action-oriented resources that can be applied or adapted by other countries responding to similar UHC challenges.

In 2018, the JLN Steering Group selected us to serve as Network Manager under a grant agreement with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. As Network Manager, MSH supported network coordination, management, partnerships, and stewardship in close collaboration with the network’s Steering Group, which included the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Bank. The JLN’s status as a global platform of, for, and by UHC leaders, and its joint learning focus, aligned with our mission to save lives and improve the health of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people by closing the gap between knowledge and action in public health.
