LSTM Seminar Series: Dr Miriam Taegtmeyer on "Community Health Systems for achieving universal health coverage: panacea or poison?"

Event 2 Mar 2018

Dr Taegtmeyer is a Reader and clinical academic at LSTM where she heads the community health systems research group.

In this seminar she will introduce the group and summarise its research contributions to the global debate on achieving universal health coverage through expanding community health approaches. She will define what a community health system is and discuss how community health workers juggle multiple tasks and expectations at the interface of communities and health systems. Instead of asking ‘what can they do for us as the final common pathway of every vertical programme in the world?’ We ask ‘What are they telling us about their work at the interface and how can we support them to optimise the quality of their work?’

This seminar will be live-streamed via:

A recording will be made available on the LSTM website the following day.
