Global- Local Linkages on Community Action and Accountability
CHSJ has been one of the leading practitioners on citizen-led community action to realise the right to health globally. CHSJ has been coordinating the activities of COPASAH (Community of Practitioners of Accountability and Social Action in Health) a global learning network. COPASAH is primarily involved in learning through sharing and building evidence from the work of community based practitioners in different parts of the world. On behalf of COPASAH CHSJ coordinated the communication hub and also produced some material which included the newsletter COPASAH Communique as well as a case study. This year CHSJ was also chosen to coordinate the Reproductive Health hub of COPASAH and hosted a round-table meeting on “The need to stimulate community action and accountability in Sexual and Reproductive Health” from March 22-24, 2018 in New Delhi, India. The workshop was attended by experts from countries in South Asia, Africa and Latin America .
The COPASAH secretariat is currently making plans to host a global symposium on social accountability in health in the year 2019.
