Join the network!

The P4H initiative extends an invitation to other partners to jointly support countries in improving social health protection. This implies that all partners are open to collaboration with all other partners working in the area of health financing and social health protection, share information and actively involve other partners in support activities.

Let’s make social health protection a reality - together we can achieve more!
