8Effect on health system at the country level Some areas:Coordination/ harmonizationLong term sustainabilityOwnershipOne set of indicators for all countries ?Core indicators plus additional related to the type of support?
9M/E the impact Some areas: DTP3 coverage Burden of diseases Contribution to MDG4How to assess what could be attributed to HSS?Studies to be conducted : when ?
