USAID’s Health Finance and Governance (HFG) hosted an hour-long webinar on Wednesday, April 5th, on expanding health coverage to informal workers. The webinar presented recent work on efforts to expand health coverage for informal workers in LMICs. In the webinar, panelists from HFG, the International Labor Organization, and Oxfam, presented their work with LMIC stakeholders and global researchers, implementers, and donors who are driving the UHC agenda.
Panelists addressed questions including:
- Who are informal workers? To what extent do they have health coverage?
- What steps – including large scale reforms and operational experimentation – are country governments and international organizations taking to expand coverage to informal workers?
