FYR Macedonia: Making Better Informed Decisions to Improve Health and Education

Social inclusion is an important goal for Macedonian analyses of service delivery in the health and education sectors.
Under the umbrella of the project “Strengthening evidence-based policy processes”, FYR Macedonia has decided to take a look at governance information needs in the health and education sectors.
