A Health Sector Analysis is a collective and participatory process which seeks to strengthen the capacity of the technical and political levels within the country to steer and conduct the health sector. The Health Sector Analysis document outlines the country’s health situation as well as the performance of the health system.

The Analysis also orients the identification and selection of priority interventions for health policy formulation and health system development. The Health Sector Analysis process typically results in the identification of policies and/or plans, programs, projects/and or interventions oriented to maximize the impact of the sector in reaching national health objectives and/or priorities.
