This study distills evidence from six countries (Bangladesh, Ghana, Kyrgyz Republic, Nepal, Malawi, and Tanzania) to address four questions regarding Sector-wide Approaches (SWAps) in the health sector:
(1) Were the anticipated benefits of the approach realized?
(2) Were the objectives of the national health strategies and programs of work achieved?
(3) Did the approach facilitate the achievement of national health objectives?
(4) In what ways did channeling support through a SWAp affect the World Bank?s efficacy?
