Toward Harmonization: Community Health Policy and Program Trends. Data from the Community Health Systems Catalog.


In 2014, Advancing Partners & Communities developed the Community Health Systems (CHS) Catalog to address information gaps, advance the WHO’s vision, and help ensure the inclusion of community-based family planning—as well as nutrition and maternal, newborn, and child health–within national agendas.

The Community Health Systems (CHS) Catalog is a resource that provides information on community-health programs, workers, and interventions for the 25 countries deemed priority by USAID’s Office of Population and Reproductive Health. It comprises a compilation of 25 country profiles developed from a desk review of community health policies, strategies, a related documentation.

This document summarizes country trends drawn from the CHS Catalog and highlights interesting and relevant findings about the global community health policy landscape. This document highlights, policies that guide a country’s community health system, including leadership and governance, and health financing. The document also highlights policy guidance around human resources for health and service delivery. Health Information Systems, from data sharing and use to data integration, and also supply chain management are highlighted. JSI/Advancing Partners & Communities. 2018.
