Maximizing Healthcare Resources through the Private Sector: Lessons for Countries Engaging in National Health Financing Initiatives
December 13, 9:00am EDT Join the the webinar
Pooling financial resources through health insurance is one of the best ways to equitably fund healthcare, reduce financial barriers to access, and prevent catastrophic health expenditure. Health insurance schemes also offer the promise of a multiplicative benefit of crowding in additional resources from the private sector, improving healthcare efficiency, and bringing about economic impact well beyond the patient's health. In this webinar, HP+ showcases how the Government of Indonesia achieved these outcomes through its national health insurance scheme, Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional.
Speakers: Sayaka Koseki, HP+; Arin Dutta, HP+; and Rebecca Ross, HP+
Building Local Capacity to Improve Regional Health Information Systems
December 13, 11:00am EDT Join the the webinar
Health information systems are a foundational piece of health infrastructure, providing governments, development partners, service providers, and communities with data to better target health interventions, allocate resources, and effectively respond to disease outbreaks. Following the 2015 Ebola epidemic, innovative and collaborative local and regional initiatives have received funding, fostering notable improvements in health information systems. One such initiative, the West African Health Informatics Team (WAHIT), led by the West African Health Organization, HP+, and USAID's Global Development Lab, is building local capacity to support digital health systems. This webinar shares the journey of establishing a regional model to build technical leadership and governance within health information systems to empower countries with high quality and timely data for decision-making and resource allocation.
Speakers: Liz Nerad, HP+; Damola Olajide, HP+, WAHIT Team Lead; and Rebecca Saxton-Fox, USAID Global Development Lab
Toward a Common Vision: Harmonizing Family Planning Priorities in Global Financing Facility Investment Cases and Costed Implementation Plans
December 18, 9:00am EDT Join the the webinar
In many FP2020 countries, resource mobilization is a fundamental stumbling block to advancing national family planning goals. During webinar, the HP+ team is joined by Brendan Hayes from the Global Financing Facility (GFF) secretariat to describe findings from a recent HP+ multi-country review of costed implementation plans for family planning (CIPs) and GFF investment cases, aimed at closing the financing gap for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health and nutrition. We will share recommendations for key actions on how to harmonize priorities for family planning in investment cases and CIPs and how to improve country-ownership of the GFF process.
Speakers: Brendan Hayes, Global Financing Facility; Reena Shukla, USAID; Elise Lang, HP+; and Christine Lasway, HP+
Family Planning Models for Advocacy: Using Evidence to Guide Policy for Impact
February 5, 9:00am EDT Join the the webinar
Mathematical models can bolster investment cases for health interventions and improve the evidence base for decision making, illustrating key concepts and modelling policy impacts. In this webinar, we examine three policy models developed by HP+, the DMPA-SC Impact Model, DemDiv, and the Family Planning-Sustainable Development Goals Model, and highlight their use for family planning advocacy and achieving significant policy results. In three short vignettes, presenters introduce each model, its purpose and distinguishing features, and tell the story of how the model has been applied and used to influence policy in a country setting. The presentations are followed by a moderated panel discussion focusing on lessons learned with respect to utilizing simulation analyses to influence and inform policy.
Speakers: Michelle Weinberger, HP+; Jay Gribble, HP+; Erin McGinn, HP+; and Kaja Jurczynska, HP+
