Health Systems Financing: The path to universal coverage

Brussels, Thursday, 9 December 2010, 17.00 What:

In the Report, WHO maps out what countries can do to modify their financing systems so they can move more quickly to universal coverage and maintain it once it has been achieved. The report builds on lessons learned and new research. It provides an action agenda for countries at all stages of development about what they can do domestically. It also proposes ways that the international community can better support efforts in low income countries to achieve universal coverage and improve health outcomes.
