The workshop will be hosted by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and will focus on assessing progress made and how to further strengthen oversight and audit in the Bangladesh health sector. It will also explore how to strengthen the stewardship role of the government in relation to private actors in the health sector. As part of efforts to strengthen integrity, accountability and transparency, it will also be important to consider how to improve citizen engagement in the sector and community ownership of health services. The participants will include Ministry of Health officials at central and local government levels, representatives from the Supreme Audit Institution, representatives from academia and civil society and representatives from multi-lateral and bi-lateral development partner organisations.
