Health Systems Global will be flying the flag for health policy and systems research at the UHC Forum in Tokyo from 12 to 15 December.
The UHC Forum is hosted by the Government of Japan, World Bank, World Health Organization, UNICEF, UHC2030, and JICA. The Forum – which is part of 2017 UHC campaign culminating on UHC Day on 12 December – aims to galvanize the health sector, countries, development partners, civil society and the private sector toward the common goal of UHC and highlight country success and breakthrough experiences to accelerate the progress of UHC.
We would like to invite all UHC Forum participants, including HSG members who will be in Tokyo, to join us at the two side events we will be hosting with the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research:
- Domestic Financing of HPSR: key to UHC, Tuesday 12 December, 8AM TO 9AM, Peony room
- Embedding Health Systems Research within Health Systems to Achieve UHC, Friday 15 December, 12:30PM to 14:30PM, Fukuju room
HSG will also be hosting a booth (No. 12) in the UHC Forum marketplace between 9AM and 5PM on Tuesday 12 December. Please do come and say hello and pick up more information about HSG and the 2018 Fifth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research. We will also be showing our short film on HPSR during the UHC Forum.
In the run-up to the UHC Forum, we are aiming to create a real buzz on social media around how health systems and policy research is fundamental to achieving universal health coverage by 2030. As part of this, we are running a Thunderclap social media campaign. For this to be successful, we need your support!
