Policy Briefs


A series of Policy briefs are being prepared by the Commonwealth Secretariat Health Section. These look at key health and well-being topics for Commonwealth countries providing easily accessible information for policy makers and planners.

Moving forward the approach with policy briefs will be to use the Commonwealth Systems Framework for Healthy Policy (SFHP) to provide a health systems strengthening lens to each of the topics addressed.

Completed policy briefs are available in the service centre of the health hub and are also linked below:

Financing Health and Education

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and health systems strengthening

Trade Agreements and Health

Health & Education: Challenges & Advancing the SDGs

Malaria and Health Systems Strengthening
