Upcoming conference on health microinsurance initiatives for universal health coverage

Wednesday, October 7, 2015
A day-long conference, organised by the Sanofi Espoir Foundation and the French Agency for Development (AFD), with the support of the International Labour Organization (ILO), entitled ´Situating health microinsurance in universal health coverage schemes in developing countries: A peer review´ will be held later this month, with over 50 participants from the microinsurance, health, insurance, academic and development industries expected to attend.
 
The event, consisting mainly of two roundtable discussions, will centre on the challenges of achieving universal health care, as well as mutual health insurance schemes and promoting universal health coverage through health microinsurance initiatives. One of the key topics to be debated is the need to prove and document the efficiency and expertise, as well as the limitations, of some industry players, in order to build efficient public-private partnerships with the use of financial and social key performance indicators (KPIs) as a consensus tool to help measure and document this.
 
The conference will take place at the AFD´s headquarters in Paris on October 29 from 9am-5:30pm. Registration closes Friday 9 October.
