2019 JLN Global Meeting

Monday 12/02/19 – Saturday 12/07/19
Location: Manama, Bahrain

The 2019 Global Meeting of the Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN) will be graciously hosted by the Kingdom of Bahrain on December 2-7, 2019.

The global meeting will convene representatives from the network’s 34 member countries and development partners to deepen relationships and discuss discrete challenges and opportunities facing the JLN.

Since the JLN’s last Global Meeting, hosted by Malaysia in July 2016, much has changed. The JLN Strategy 2018-2022 was launched, membership has expanded, new learning priorities were identified, and global momentum for universal health coverage has grown. In 2019, the time is right for another global meeting.

Contact the JLN Network Manager for more information and any questions by emailing jln@msh.org.
