Health financing website receives positive feedback!
4 February 2013
Last year, Save the Children launched a health financing website (equitablehealthfinancing.org) designed with the help of Christina Pagel and Martin Utley of CORU and colleagues at the UCL Institute of Global Health. We initially reported on this last year, but now early reviews are in! Preliminary feedback has proven very positive and we are hopeful that this methodology could become a new way to bridge the gap between academic evidence and policy.
The work has recently been published (1) in a new journal JMIR: Research Protocols.
