Networking and Coalition Building for Health Advocacy: Advancing Country Ownership

Networks and coalitions can be effective in mobilizing political will, influencing policy and financing, and strengthening health programs. By sharing resources and workload, networks and coalitions can take advantage of their members' capabilities and skills to plan and implement joint advocacy campaigns, present a unified front, and make collective demands to government. The Health Policy Project prepared this brief to provide leaders of civil society organizations with guidance on working within networks and coalitions to advocate for improved family planning, HIV care and treatment, and maternal health policies and programs.
