A short introduction to the key components of successful care reform based on lessons learnt from Eastern and Southern Africa

Although care reform is well established in some parts of the Eastern and Southern Africa, many countries in the region are just beginning their care reform journey. This short paper is aimed at these contexts. It explains what care reform is, the different components of care reform, why care reform is important and how to start a care reform process.  The paper is accompanied by a video where experts from countries with established care reform programmes explain why they choose to prioritise care reform and the lessons they have learnt.
