Project Description

According to the bank website, the project will support the conduct of two knowledge events which will help accelerate UHC efforts by DMCs and the different UHC-related interventions that would help them achieve better health outcomes for their populations. In particular, these are 1) the G20 side meeting on UHC where OECD countries will share experiences and lessons in investing in UHC and how they made these investments, particularly in health financing and service delivery innovations as part of their national development priorities and 2) a joint ADB-JICA conference on UHC where DMCs will share their current experience in designing and implementing UHC strategies and interventions. The TA will also support the preparation of a series of background documents, case studies and visual material of UHC innovations through review of documents and key informant interviews and based on the two knowledge events.
