Health Cooperation: ”We will promote knowledge sharing and mutual learning between actors in international health cooperation.”
In the arena of international health, there are already a great number of thematic communities. However, there is still a lack of platforms where actors in health cooperation can critically reflect their own practices and approaches, share information and experiences, learn from each other and have an opportunity to further develop their institutional and personal skills and practices. This is where the MMI Network will invest into the development of further services.
The previous Network strategy explicitly focused on contributing to health system strengthening as common denominator for Network activities. The MMI Network strategy 2016-20 further specifies this approach, asking how international cooperation itself can best contribute to strengthening health systems and policies, and how to avoid weakening them: "By the end of 2020, Network members will be able to build on a range of platforms and instruments for knowledge sharing and mutual learning in the field of international health cooperation."
- MMI will promote knowledge sharing and mutual learning between actors in international health cooperation.
“MMI will promote the systematic integration of a particular track/section on the role of international health cooperation into key global events and partnerships dealing with in health systems strengthening and Universal Health Coverage. MMI is available for being involved and providing leadership in the design and implementation of such tracks/sections.”
- MMI will continue to promote members’ events.
MMI will enhance and further develop the current model of labelling and promoting particular members’ events as “MMI Network meetings”. MMI will promote these events within and beyond the Network.
> MMI Network: Events
- MMI will foster a more structured involvement of the Network and its members in global events and thematic platforms.
MMI will promote and coordinate joint contributions of Network members to already existing conferences relevant for international health cooperation. MMI will support a more structured involvement of the Network in relevant thematic platforms. Key topics will be identified by members who take the lead.
> MMI Working groups: EHC - HRH - GHG - NCD
> MMI Network: Topics
- MMI will foster the dialogue between research institutions and actors in international health cooperation.
MMI will continue to create and use opportunities for an interdisciplinary dialogue between research institutions and NGOs/actors in international health cooperation at all levels: events, publications, columns, newsletter editorials, etc. For this purpose, MMI will further strengthen its institutional relations with international research platforms.
