IHP news 517: UHC

By on April 12, 2019


UHC2030 is kicking off work on private sector engagement in close collaboration with WHO, the World Bank and the World Economic Forum (WEF). We envisage two major contributions this year:

  1. A global multi-stakeholder statement of how the private sector can contribute to UHC to be launched at the UN High-level Meeting on UHC on 23 September 2019
  2. Multi-stakeholder dialogues in 2-3 countries to identify the potential role of the private sector to fill gaps and improve primary health care 

On 21 May 2019, UHC2030 together with the WEF and WHO is hosting an event on the edge of the World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland called ‘Profiting from profit: aligning private sector interests with UHC goals’.


“The present document presents an analytical guide with questions to assess a country’s provider payment system in greater detail in order to identify options for better aligning the payment system with the objectives of UHC. The purpose of the analysis is to inform and improve the national policy dialogue on purchasing. It assists in making the case for and drawing attention to the need of aligning payment methods within and across purchasers as an important step towards strategic purchasing.”
