Universal Health Coverage (UHC) has been one of the focal themes of discussion at forums, including the United Nation General Assembly, as reflected in goal 3 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). From 8-12 October 2018, AFIDEP experts will join players involved in health systems and policy research and practice at the Arena and Convention Centre (ACC) in Liverpool, United Kingdom for the 5th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR2018) in discussions on new ways of financing health; delivering services; and engaging the health workforce, new social and political alliances, and new applications of technologies to promote health for all.
The symposium will bring new opportunities to learn from and network with leading experts while also building skills and discovering new tools that can help increase the impact of work. The symposium is organised every two years by Health Systems Global and will bring together up to 2,000 health systems researchers, policymakers and practitioners from around the world. The theme this year is ‘Advancing Health Systems for All in the SDG era’.
