Once health-sector reformers have decided which performance problems to focus on—that is, once they have decided on their strategic priorities—they have to go on to the next stages of the policy cycle. This means, first of all, figuring out the causes of the poor performance they are concerned with—a process called “diagnosis.” Then they have to decide what to do about the situation—the process called “policy development.” This chapter discusses those activities and offers advice about how to carry them out, so as to produce more effective health-sector reform.
