Achieving Universal Healthcare through Primary Healthcare Transformation
Great strides have been made in health outcomes globally over the past 40 years, however, our world faces many ongoing health challenges. A primary healthcare (PHC) approach is the most effective and efficient way to sustainably solve today’s health and health system challenges. The Declaration of Astana, unanimously endorsed by all WHO Member States, makes pledges in four key areas: (1) to make bold political choices for health across all sectors, (2) to build sustainable primary health care, (3) to empower individuals and communities, and (4) to align stakeholder support to national policies, strategies and plans.
On May 15th and 16th, 2019, stakeholders from public, private and non-profit institutions will convene in Hanoi, Vietnam to joint Achieving Universal Health Coverage through Primary Healthcare in the Age of Innovation and the Fourth Industrial Revolution in order to highlight accomplishments and innovations in primary healthcare delivery, engage in policy discussions and find areas of synergies for collaboration to create an enabling eco-system.
There will be two separate sessions operating take place over the course of two days on May 15th and 16th, 2019.
