World Bank talks Universal Health Coverage

Lead Economist at the World Bank's Health and Nutrition Global Practice, Daniel Cotlear, joined The George Institute for Global Health to discuss Universal Health Coverage and its implementation policies around the world. 

Respondants included Dr Virginia Wiseman of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Associate Professor Joel Negin from the University of Sydney. 

About the World Bank's UNICO series: The World Bank’s UHC Studies Series “UNICO” assembles case study evidence on health reforms and policies that are driving the expansion of quality health services to poor and low-income populations, while also striving to improve efficiency.

Since 2013, the Study Series has documented UHC reform programs in 40 countries, with a combined population of 2.6 billion people. The case studies employ a standardised approach aimed at understanding the tools, policies, instruments and institutions, used to expand health coverage across three dimensions: population, health services and affordability.

This seminar was the first in a series of seminars running over the coming months on all things health and policy.
