Improving Universal Health Coverage: What about Governance?

As countries pursue Universal Health Coverage (UHC), their focus tends to be on health financing and health service delivery. Governance is often overlooked, but is a critical component of UHC design.  Please join RTI International, the DC Health Systems Board (DCHSB), and Health Systems Global for a discussion on the governance implications of country efforts to achieve UHC.

This panel will examine how governance thinking can influence UHC, with panelists bringing both theoretical and practical expertise to the conversation. Breakfast will be provided prior to the event at 8:30am.  Please join us for what promises to be another informative and thought-provoking exchange. Register here.
