The JLN's Primary Health Care Financing and Payment collaborative concluded with a final conference held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, between April 16-18, 2019, to provide an opportunity for JLN members to reflect on progress made on provider payment mechanism (PPM) reforms over the past eight years and to share lessons from their experiences implementing primary health care financing and payment in support of UHC. Countries also reflected on the role the JLN has played to support knowledge-sharing and country progress and future opportunities for continued shared learning. Participants also deliberated on how to sustain PPM progress as country teams discussed next steps for defining benefit packages and costing for resource allocation.
