Financing and payment models for primary health care (PHC) are important tools for addressing issues of access, quality, and equity in health care. These models should allow adequate resources to flow to the primary care level and make priority interventions accessible to the entire population. 

However, countries often find it challenging to develop financing and payment systems that align with payment systems at other service delivery levels, create opportunity and incentives to provide better primary care, ensure more equitable access, and shield families from impoverishing out-of-pocket payments. 

Many countries, including those in the Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN), have tried a wide variety of approaches and models for PHC financing and payment, but few of those experiences have been evaluated or their lessons well documented for an international audience.

About the Webinar
The GIZ/JLN Provider Payment Mechanisms (PPM) technical initiative is hosting a webinar to share country experiences with different PHC financing and payment models. Participants will engage in a deep-dive into the Estonia health system and PHC reform process, followed by a discussion on common challenges, lessons, and creative solutions for PHC financing and payment. This exchange aims for participants to develop a deeper understanding of how to better leverage financing and payment models for PHC to improve population health and financial protection in low- and middle-income countries.

Strategic Communications for UHC

Dear all,

Thank you for joining us yesterday for the third virtual meeting of the HFG/JLN Strategic Communications for UHC learning exchange. For those of you who were unable to join us, find attached the slides and notes from this meeting and below a link to the webinar recording.

As next steps, we have agreed on the following:

  • Country delegations to provide all additional inputs to the Practical Guide and Planning Tool (written content and comments) by Friday, December 8th
    • If your country team has not yet reviewed the materials and sent comments, please do so as soon as possible.
  • Country delegations to share completed communications plans and reach out to facilitators or other country delegations if interested in review/feedback
  • Facilitation team to revise Practical Guide and Planning Tool based on final inputs, share updated draft in January 2018
  • Country delegations to provide final review and approvals, including sign off from JLN country CCGs in January 2018
  • Facilitation team to work with designers and HFG/JLN communications team on publication and dissemination plan
    • Preview of materials to be shared at upcoming JLN UHC event in Seoul, Korea to raise visibility.

In addition, one outstanding question that we did not have time to address on the webinar that we would like to pose for consideration by the group is: Is there a desire for future, deeper work on the topic of strategic communications? If so, are there any areas of particular interest? Please reach out to the facilitation team via email or feel free to share your thoughts HERE in the comments section.

Thank you again for your time and contributions to this work. We look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes,

Betty and the Facilitation Team

Dear JLN Members, 

The JLN and the WHO Global Learning Laboratory for Quality (GLL) have emerged as two prominent platforms connecting individuals worldwide to exchange expertise and accelerate progress toward UHC through joint learning and engagement with multiple stakeholders. 

As two platforms with similar approaches and goals, the JLN and GLL are working to identify potential collaborations, leverage each other's networks, and cross-fertilize thinking. We would like to invite each of you to join this webinar to learn more about how the JLN can collaborate and leverage the GLL's platform on quality. 

About the Webinar
The GLL-JLN webinar will introduce JLN members to the GLL platform and community and aim to:

  • Explain the rationale behind the GLL for quality UHC
  • Describe the structure of the GLL for quality UHC
  • Orient JLN members on the functionality of the GLL
  • Collectively explore areas for collaboration between the two learning agendas
  • Highlight how JLN member countries can get involved in and benefit from the GLL
