During five days of intense interaction with peers and thought leaders, participants will deepen their knowledge and understanding of practical health financing concepts and promising solutions to common challenges such as how to grow and use financial resources to increase financial protection, improve equitable access to priority health services, and achieve financial sustainability in a universal health coverage (UHC) context.
