The World Bank Group and USAID hosted the Second Annual UHC Financing Forum in advance of the World Bank Group – International Monetary Fund Spring Meetings. 

The focus of the 2017 Forum is efficiency, or value for money. Building on last year’s topics of domestic resource mobilization, the Second Annual UHC Financing Forum focused on strategic policies and practical interventions to help governments use health system resources more efficiently. The agenda will include a mix of plenary and parallel sessions with expected attendance of 300 experts on public and health finance and service delivery, including representatives from Ministries of Finance and Health from low and middle-income countries, and staff from bi- and multi-lateral institutions, civil society organizations, think tanks, and academia.
