We are pleased to announce our conference “Public – Private Partnership For Universal Health Coverage”. The Conference will take place on November12-13, 2017 at the Cairo Marriott Hotel, Cairo, Egypt.
Countries of the developing world have de facto mixed of public and private health
delivery systems, but government health system stewards mostly lack essential
information, know-how and mechanisms to create effective engagement with private
providers to deliver primary health care services. In order to obtain full access and
better quality, the engagement of the private sector into the public health system
through stronger partnership based on clear objective within a well-defined
regulatory mechanism must be considered in conjunction with evaluating the benefits
of establishing a broader system. This will help address the challenges of
affordability, availability, and the quality of care.
The MENA Health Policy form is organizing a conference to answer the question
“how can public/private interests become better aligned for the provision of equitable
services toward universal health coverage?”
This will be elaborated on by defining the role of the private sector in health systems
and to identify opportunities to strengthen the public/private health systems in the
MENA region with the aim of taking advantage of the existing private sector to serve
public health objectives.
The conference will provide a platform for policy dialogue
and experience exchange among policymakers, private sector actors, academia,
researchers and development organizations to identify better efficient engagement of
private sector in health service delivery to improve health coverage and hence
outcomes in MENA region.
