DFID continues to work with the Department of Health to keep the government’s approach to health systems strengthening under review. As set out in the government response to the International Development Committee’s report on Strengthening Health Systems in Developing Countries, DFID will develop a framework for the UK’s work on health systems strengthening that will include its approach to human resources for health and will be set in the context of the new post-2015 development goals.
