  • Define key measures of inequity at a national level, and use these measures to identify vulnerable populations and the possible causes of their inequitable access to health services;
  • Adapt existing tools and approaches for strengthening community-based health systems and participatory health governance to fit different local contexts and sectors;
  • Undertake analyses of the financial barriers to health care, drawing appropriate policy implications and identifying potential social protection interventions;
