Bold Moves: New Ways of Governance and Partnering of UHC (Part Two)

Part Two: Bold Moves in Partnering

The UHC Forum 2017 in Tokyo is taking place amidst an emerging articulation of ‘new and bold’ visions on accelerating UHC with a clear expression that quality service delivery, financial access and governance are key.

Under the working title “Bold Moves: New Ways of Governance and Partnering for UHC”, the Health Systems Governance Collaborative and the UHC-Partnership team up in a special coproduction, focused on urgent concrete steps to take to arrive at a new political economy of health which may address the real health bottlenecks in more effective and inclusive ways. 

In the second interactive session of this two-part side event, the spotlight will be on creative ways of partnering for UHC. The UHC Partnership will draw on the vast experience of five years of programme implementation to support policy dialogue, with a view of promoting UHC in about 30 countries. One of the partnerships’ objectives is to foster strategic planning and health system governance, an area in which creative cooperation is sought with the rapidly growing Health Systems Governance Collaborative. In the SDG era, it is critically important to build up MoH capacities and leadership; to be able to convene stakeholders, from other ministries, development partners or private entities, to jointly move the UHC agenda forward. The outcomes of the deliberations will feed into the #BoldMovesTokyo Mini-Manifesto.
