‘Aminu Magashi Garba’ the AHBN Coordinator is invited to join the Technical Working Group (TWG) for the 3rd Annual UHC Financing Forum. It is the 3rd in a series of annual events that bring together countries and partners to shape a collective agenda on sustainable financing for universal health coverage (UHC) and provide a platform to advance knowledge and its application in financing UHC. In particular, the goals of these events are to:

  1. Facilitate an exchange between host governments, political leaders, donors and technical experts to build consensus on approaches to enhance the development and implementation of strategies, policy and advocacy approaches;
  2. Review evidence to date and debate its implications to determine knowledge gaps, strengths and weaknesses of current approaches, with an emphasis on controversial issues; and
  3. Brainstorm research priorities and approaches, and opportunities for capacity building.

The 3rd forum will take place at the 2018 World Bank Group-IMF Spring Meetings in April 2018 in Washington DC and co-hosted by the World Bank and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

The main tasks of the TWG are as follows;

  • Contribute technical leadership in the development and review of background materials for the Forum.
  • Develop the agenda and content of the proceedings (including plenary and parallel sessions and speakers, chairs/moderators, rapporteurs, etc.).
  • Facilitate the implementation of follow-up activities and/or deliverable on topics addressed in the Forum.

We are excited for this opportunity giving to our coordinator and what it means potentially to enrich the content of the forum’s sessions and broaden the participation of CSOs in the 3rd UHC financing forum in 2018.
