Assessment Description.
The purpose of this individual assessment is to foster students’ ability to utilise data and a systemsthinking approach to predict the role and influence of preventative strategies and technology on the
demand for healthcare in the future. Students will debate the ethical issues that can arise in the
management of health care systems. They will utilise these skills to develop plans and
recommendations to create ways for systems and management challenges to be resolved. In
addition, they will create an inventory of resource requirements that are applicable to a variety of
healthcare settings, with a focus on vulnerable populations.
Assessment Instructions

This analysis should be undertaken using a systems thinking approach and should use the WHO
six building blocks of a health system framework. The building blocks are:
o Service Delivery: good service delivery comprises quality, access, safety and coverage.
o Health Workforce: a well-performing workforce consists of human resources
management, skills and policies.
o Information: a well performing system ensures the production, analysis, dissemination
and use of timely and reliable information.
o Medical Products, Vaccines and Technologies; procurement and supply programs
need to ensure equitable access, assured quality and cost-effective use.
o Financing: a good health financing system raises adequate funds for health, protects
people from financial catastrophe, allocates resources, and purchases good and services
in ways that improve quality, equity, and efficiency.
o Leadership and Governance (Stewardship): effective leadership and governance
ensures the existence of strategic policy frameworks, effective oversight and coalitionbuilding, provision of appropriate incentives, and attention to system design, and
accountability.
