How Can Governance Help Achieve Universal Health Coverage?

December 6, 2017 - 9:00am to 10:30am

As countries pursue Universal Health Coverage (UHC), their focus tends to be on health financing and health service delivery. Governance is often overlooked, and yet is a critical component of UHC design.

In December 2017, RTI International, the DC Health Systems Board (DCHSB), and Health Systems Global hosted a discussion on the governance implications of country efforts to achieve UHC.

This panel examined how governance thinking can influence UHC, with panelists bringing both theoretical and practical expertise to the conversation.

Below is a video stream of the event.
