Updates from the Joint Learning Network in India

This post originally appeared as part of the Joint Learning Network’s monthly newsletter.

ACCESS Health is one of the founders of the Joint Learning Network, an innovative knowledge network for low and middle income countries who are focused on expanding health coverage for all citizens.

India is one of the participating members of the network. With the Government of India on the verge of redesigning the largest government health insurance program, Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY), JLN India’s Country Core Group (CCG) convened with representatives from ACCESS Health InternationalGIZ and the World Bank to discuss greater coordination.
Key takeaways from these discussions:
  • The participants concurred that the JLN will provide India and the states with a global learning exchange platform on good practices in health.
  • India will leverage the JLN’s global learning platform to supplement its long-running World Bank-funded GSHIS Forum Series that provides for practitioner-to-practitioner learning between states.
In summary, the group shared on technical initiatives activities, events, and knowledge products available under the JLN and how India has benefited and contributed to the JLN since its inception. View blog here.
