As part of the Civil Society Forum at the WB/IMF Spring Meetings 2017, the session explored how working towards UHC by focusing on horizontal programming and key multi-sectoral actions can and should benefit pneumonia, diarrhea and other childhood killers. The session provided insights on the potential for the GFF to increase short-term investment in health services and long-term domestic resources by using pneumonia and diarrhea as case studies.
