Cross-cutting Features




Being a learning platform guides the virtual platform organization. For each topic under consideration and whenever relevant, posted materials and links are organized within three subsections:

·       Relevant knowledge,

·       Region specific findings, and

·       Useful tools.

These subsections are intended to facilitate access to existing knowledge and data portals, to disseminate region-specific findings, including those produced within our partnership network, and to provide easy access to SDGs implementation tools.




Three underlying threads bind together and influence all contents:

·       Social determinants of health (SDH),

·       Health policies and health system strengthening (HP&S), and

·       Social justice and health equity (HE).




English is the basic language of the platform. Reflecting our regional focus, we also feature contents in Arabic and in French.
