Strengthening Health Markets for Universal Coverage

COMMITTEE ROOM 9, HOUSE OF COMMONS, LONDON

High-level panel discussion bringing together parliamentarians with experts in health and in business to address the question of achieving Universal Health Coverage. Improving health markets will be critical to delivering this ambition, but how can governments, businesses and others working in the health sector coordinate more effectively to help make these markets work better, especially for the poorest communities?. It will examine the role that private-public partnerships, new technologies and better regulation can play in strengthening and widening access to health services for the world’s poor and assess how UK development policy can support these efforts.
