Add to Calendar September 16 7:30 am September 16 8:30 am America/New_York NCD Hard Talks: Biggest Burden, Where’s the Money?

NCDs are the world’s number one killer, yet health systems are chronically underfunded to tackle this biggest burden. NCD services in least developed countries remain patchy and sporadic, with a need for sustainable financing mechanisms to guarantee NCD entitlements for all through appropriate planning, defining of essential health service packages, prioritizing a guaranteed benefit package, ensuring access to medicines and technology, a skilled workforce and robust data to support clinical care and counselling.

This webinar session will convene health and finance experts to unpack the design and politics of financing NCD and health services, share country realities, and explore how to leverage domestic and international funding to cover catastrophic health expenditures posed by NCDs, answering the hard questions of how to finance resilient health systems of tomorrow.
