Community of Practitioners on Accountability and Social Action in Health (COPASAH) COPASAH Steering Committee (SC) and the COPASAH Global Secretariat, currently hosted by Centre for Health and Social Justice (CHSJ), New Delhi are organising the Global Symposium on Citizenship, Governance and Accountability in Health from October 15-18, 2019 at New-Delhi (India). COPASAH is co-organising this Symposium in partnership with organisations and networks committed to the health and human rights of the most marginalised.
COPASAH was started in 2011 by a group of practitioners, who had been using Social Accountability approaches to strengthen the linkage between communities and the health system to provide quality and accountable care. It is essentially a learning network with a focus on marginalized communities where practitioners learn from each other and by distilling lessons from practice and a bottom up process.
