The 2018 BHF Annual Report
As healthcare systems around the world move towards universal health coverage, much research has been undertaken on what needs to be done to achieve this. Fittingly, the theme of the 2018 annual BHF conference was ‘Putting the healthcare citizen first’ as we sought a deeper understanding of what the next steps are for the industry to find alignment, action and participation in driving implementation of systems that are equitable, affordable and accessible to all ‘healthcare citizens’.
