Improving Health Insurance Coverage in LMICs

Virtual Roundtable – Monday 22 November 12:00 – 14:00 CET

Organized by Swiss TPH and Geneva Health Forum

In trying to increase outreach of health insurance to the entire population, LMICs governmental and non-governmental schemes have applied a range of measures including regulations on health insurance, utilization of new technologies, developing communication strategies and making health insurance compulsory.

Join us in this roundtable to identify and discuss the main obstacles to inclusive health insurance in LMICs and the broader question of financial access to quality care in a sustainable way.

The panel will be chaired by Damien Revault, Project Leader at Swiss TPH.

The panelists are:

* Bruno Galland, former Director of Health Systems and Social Protection Department of the “Centre International de Développement et de Recherche” (CIDR)

* Joseph Kutzin, Acting Director, Health Systems Governance and Financing, World Health Organization/Geneva

* Pascal NDIAYE, Social Protection Adviser at Louvain Cooperation
