Innovative Health Financing in Developing Markets

Synopsis:

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that over 100 million people are left impoverished annually due to out-of-pocket healthcare spending. Health shocks are a common cause of financial distress. Thus, it is not a surprise that dramatically increased economic productivity has been closely associated with positive healthcare outcomes. This points to a need to recognize that access to affordable healthcare is a great social as well as economic need.

Availability of healthcare financing is a necessary pre-requisite for affordable access to healthcare. This makes innovative financing in the healthcare sector an urgent societal need. This innovation is taking shape through the introduction of various financial tools and blended capital sources.

Join us as we explore policies and case studies around innovative financing tools that will play a significant role in achieving health equity and economic growth in Asia.
