Sustainable Health Financing for Primary Health Care: From Evidence to Practice Event
The Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN) Reimagining Primary Health Care (PHC) Collaborative brings together policymakers from a diversity of countries to learn from each other by sharing lessons and innovations, solving common challenges, and co-producing knowledge on building a fit-for-purpose PHC. The JLN is honored to invite you to the inaugural event of the Collaborative on health financing, a learning topic prioritized among its members.
An aim of the Reimagining PHC Collaborative is to bring practical and innovative approaches financing primary health care. This event is the first step in the process and aims to build a collective understanding of what constitutes health financing, the various pillars of health financing, and their interconnectedness. The session will be an entry point for ongoing conversations innovating in health financing for PHC, and the different approaches and applications of reforms.
At this event, we will reflect on the key findings of the Lancet Commission with lead author, Professor Kara Hanson of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. Ajay Tandon, Lead Economist at the World Bank, will offer further perspective on the Commission’s implications, followed by reflections from Erno Harzheim, former Vice-Minister for PHC, Ministry of Health Brazil. Finally, the event will feature a vibrant panel discussion with our speakers and country policymakers: Dr Davis Johnraj, Senior Officer in the National Health Financing Section of the Planning Division in Ministry of Health Malaysia, Dr Peter Yeboah, Executive Director of Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG) and CHAG’s Deputy Executive Director, Dr James Duah.
