As more countries prioritize universal health coverage policies, governments increasingly rely upon quality data to make informed policy decisions. However, persistent challenges in their data systems constrain progress toward improvements in the access, quality, and affordability of health services.
In this webinar, members of the JLN’s Data Foundations collaborative highlighted three case studies about data governance and use to improve universal health coverage policies, shared how the case studies were developed and some key takeaways, and introduced the development of a companion guide to help governments apply the case studies.
Collaborative members shared short presentations on data use in chronic disease management, financial management, and claims data use, before an open question and answer period for webinar attendees. Our speakers included:
- Caren Althauser (PATH) and Robert Eichler (Wipro, Ltd.) as co-moderators
- Helen Kiarie (Ministry of Health, Kenya) as a presenter
- Joshua Kolajo (National Health Insurance Scheme, Nigeria) as a presenter
- Won Whang (National Health Insurance Service, Republic of Korea) as a presenter
