Leaders in Healthcare Conference

11 OCTOBER 2018

In association with the Federal Ministry Of Health

 

THEME: The UHC roadmap - Shaping West Africa’s healthcare of the future

UHC is particularly important in Africa, where structural-adjustment policies undermined state capacity, promoted privatisation and pushed the burden of payment onto the poor. In recent years, very little has been done to address the neglect of national healthcare systems and citizens’ lack of trust in them. We’’ll debate and discuss the roadmap towards effective UHC through system reform and capacity strengthening in order to deliver this important mandate
