1. Policy Advocacy
1.1 Law and Policy Submissions and Working papers
HLPC makes submissions to policy bodies on law, institutional and policy reforms highlighting key gaps,
issues and points of public interest. This is done through “submissions” and “advisory notes”. Research
is used to promote evidence based policy making and raise awareness of policy in communities.
Writing and researching of Working Paper Series on pertinent health law and policy issues under the
direction of established researchers is undertaken all year round.
1.2 Policy Dialogues
The HLPC holds two types of policy dialogues targeting Communities, Policy Makers and the Media
a) Policy Dialogues for Policy Makers
Policy dialogues with policy makers are held on thematic issues and identified policies
around access and quality of health care services including prevention, treatment and
management of diseases within a human rights based framework. HLPC aims to strengthen
the capacity of policymakers to understand policy implementation monitoring data and take
b) Media Meetings
The media is an important part of advocacy. The HLPC engages journalists and media
personnel through media forums which are convened based on health policy themes and
topical issues of outbreaks, access to services, budgeting, legislative agenda and state
obligations in the provision of health services.
