The Balanced Scorecard (BSC) epitomizes strengthening health systems through strengthening governance. Rahel Gizaw, MLI Country Lead for Ethiopia, told the audience at the Global Health Council’s annual conference that the BSC strengthens Ethiopia’s Federal Ministry of Health through capturing performance measures, targets and initiatives. With more clarity, more can be accomplished As a featured panelist on the Abt Associates’ session, ‘Integrating Governance into Health Systems Strengthening,’ Gizaw explained how the BSC, who’s roll out was supported by MLI, has created change over the last year for the majority of the health sector. This was only accomplished, she stated, through the commitment of leaders within the ministry. The government’s dedication was contagious.
