Public Engagement in Health Priority Setting in Low- and Middle-Income Countries
Current Trends and Considerations for Policy
PLOS Medicine "The new global recommendations on collaborative governance in the health sector may inadvertently pressure LMICs to engage the public in health planning, including HPS. However, the weak evidence on how to do this, the substantial resources required, and risks associated with such processes suggest that countries mandating public engagement in that context should reconsider their related policies. Moreover, the resources and efforts from development partners currently invested in advocating for public engagement in HPS may be better spent on strengthening the evidence for what works within the realities of LMICs, using small-scale, community-driven trials."
