Domestic public funds to finance health in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) has decreased over the past 15 years. The Universal Health Coverage (UHC) agenda brings into sharp contrast the need to increase revenue raising from a range of sources including government budgets. The Global Financing Facility (GFF) was set up as a mechanism fill the financing gap for women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health (WCAH) in part by increasing the efficiency of health financing and by leveraging domestic resources for WCAH. So what might be learned from GFF implementation, and civil society’s engagement in that space, to inform wider health financing efforts?
The GFF Civil Society Coordinating Group, Africa Health Budget Network, Open Society Foundations, and CORE Group invite you to a watch a webinar looking at GFF financing, in the wider context of health financing for UHC, and to share civil society experiences of undertaking health financing advocacy. This webinar is part of a series of webinars aimed at strengthening civil society engagement in the GFF process.
