This documentary chronicles our journey to Uganda, where we met with community health workers across the country to hear their voices regarding the next steps in community health. The journey was part of a wider project to understand how lessons spread between countries: how can one country learn from another as it builds and strengthens its health system? This question was posed to us by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, in a bid to improve its own understanding and that of other international donors on what it could do to facilitate learning for action across health systems.
