The International Health Partnership: making development cooperation more effective There will be interpretation in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish The year 2013 marks a pivotal moment for the global health community. Millions more people are living healthy, productive lives, yet major health inequities persist across and within countries, and poor health remains a major driver of poverty. To achieve the goal of improved health outcomes through universal health coverage, countries and development partners need to find better ways of collaborating to ensure that available resources are used more effectively and fairly. In December 2012, IHP+ country signatories identified critical areas where change is needed to progress on the health-related Millennium Development Goals. In this technical briefing, countries and international partners will discuss the current situation and outline the way forward.

There will be interpretation in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish Since the two WHA resolutions on universal health coverage (WHA 58.33 of 2005 and WHA 64.9 of 2011) many countries have sought to modify their health systems to provide universal coverage. An increasing number of governments have sought WHO technical and policy support in this endeavour. In February 2013, WHO and the World Bank jointly hosted a ministerial-level meeting on universal health coverage which included participation from ministries of health, ministries of finance, development partners, and civil society. A clear statement was requested regarding what universal health coverage is, what it is not, the actions countries can take to move closer to universal health coverage, and information on how countries can monitor their own progress. The technical briefing will include a report of the ministerial-level meeting, followed by a discussion of the framework for universal health coverage, and suggestions on how progress can be monitored.
