Peer Learning To Improve Health Services For Poor

November 02, 2010

Dakar, Senegal

Access to quality health services does not come without a price. In several developing countries, decreasing the financial burden on individuals and families seeking health services continues to be a major challenge. However, in recent years, many African countries have launched ambitious national policies aiming to reduce or eliminate financial barriers to health care. In response to these country-led initiatives and in efforts to foster greater south-to-south peer learning, the Harmonization for Health in Africa (HHA) group joined MLI in sponsoring a regional workshop on “Improving Financial Access to Health Care for the Poor” in Dakar, Senegal from the 2-4 November, 2010. HHA, comprised of the African Development Bank, UNAIDS, UNFPA, UNICEF, USAID, WHO, and the World Bank, is committed to providing support to governments of poor countries wishing to adopt health financing policies to improve access to health services.
