To end HIV, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria as epidemics and fight emerging threats like COVID-19, we need to strengthen the formal and community health systems and responses that make up resilient and sustainable systems for health (RSSH).
Resilient and sustainable systems for health are the foundation of healthy, productive communities. RSSH is not just about government health systems, but also about services provided by communities, the private sector and other providers, which together should ensure that peoples’ health needs are met wherever they seek care. These systems are essential for ending HIV, TB and malaria as public health threats, producing better health outcomes for all and delivering health services in a sustainable, equitable and effective way. RSSH is also the basis for preventing, preparing for and responding to future pandemics. The whole world benefits when we build the strength and resilience of formal and community health systems everywhere.
