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
