Financing Primary Care
Session six of the PHC interest group’s ten-part seminar series “Primary Health Care: The heart of every health system” that is running once a month throughout the 2022/23 academic year.
The seminar series provides an overview of the key functions and features of PHC; its potential in achieving universal health coverage and its role in global health. Seminars are led by speakers working in a range of settings.
Learn more about the rest of the events in this series.
In this session we will examine different approaches to financing PHC, drawing on lessons from different contexts.
For those that wish to take part, the session will be followed by a 'world cafe' to continue the conversation in breakout rooms with other participants online, facilitated by Luisa Pettigrew and Luke Allen. The ‘world cafe’ will start five minutes after the seminar has ended (approximately 13:50) and will run until 14:30. The link to participate will be shared during the seminar.
