Shared effort for a common goal. Finishing the unfinished business of universal access to quality health care.
Ensuring access to sustainable health care for all is a major challenge in developing countries. Despite good progress in past years, nearly 830 women die every day from preventable causes linked to pregnancy and childbirth. Universal access requires an efficient health system the provides all people with quality health services, health workers, medicine and technologies, and an adequate financing system.
Meeting these challenges will depend on effective cooperation among several actors including governments, development organisations, NGOs and the private sector. This session will bring together high-level representatives from those groups to discuss how to join forces to overcome the current barriers and finish the unfinished business of ensuring universal access to quality health.
