On the resilience of health systems: A methodological exploration across countries in the WHO African Region

This paper aims to contribute to the growing body of empirical evidence on health systems and service resilience, which is of great importance to the functionality and performance of health systems, particularly in the context of COVID-19. It provides a methodological reflection for monitoring health system resilience, revealing areas of improvement in the provision of essential health services during shock events, and builds a case for the need for mechanisms, at the country level, that address both specific and non-specific shocks to the health system, ultimately for the attainment of improved health outcomes.
