Each year, delegations representing all World Health Organization (WHO) Member States attend the World Health Assembly (WHA) to determine the policies and budget of the organization.
In advance of this year's WHA, the Center for Global Development will convene a curtain-raiser event to highlight topics and controversies on the WHA agenda -- from universal health coverage (UHC) and its measurement to the role WHO might play vis-à-vis global partnerships and funders and the alignment of global priorities.
The Center for Global Development (CGD) and The Global Financing Facility (GFF) invite you to the co-hosted Twitter Chat: Global Financing Facility: Investing in People. This interactive chat will discuss the details of GFF’s results-based model, its approach to sustainable global health financing, and scaling the impact of this innovative program over its planned expansion period (2018-2023).
Every year, more than 5 million women, children and adolescents die from preventable conditions, due to a significant financing gap for healthcare for women, children and adolescents, and inadequate incentives for provision and use of quality health services, among other factors. The Global Financing Facility (GFF) in support of Every Woman Every Child is a new approach to sustainable global health financing that is supporting countries’ approaches to financing and investing in the health of their people.
