ii Stakeholder Analysis
The Partnerships for Health Reform (PHR) Project seeks to improve people’s health in low- and
middle-income countries by supporting health sector reforms that ensure equitable access to
efficient, sustainable, quality health care services. In partnership with local stakeholders, PHR
promotes an integrated approach to health reform and builds capacity in the following key areas:
Better informed and more participatory policy processes in health sector reform;
More equitable and sustainable health financing systems;
Improved incentives within health systems to encourage agents to use and deliver
efficient and quality health services; and
Enhanced organization and management of health care systems and institutions to
support specific health sector reforms.
PHR advances knowledge and methodologies to develop, implement, and monitor health
reforms and their impact, and promotes the exchange of information on critical health reform
