Conference Theme

Entitled, “A Roadmap to Universal Healthcare”. The 2016 Annual BHF Southern African Conference will focus on NHI as a vehicle to achieve Universal Healthcare.

NHI requires  policy reforms in line with the constitutional obligation and the values of justice, fairness and social solidarity for a more open, equitable and accountable system.

In line with our theme, the conference will focus on the following objectives:

  • Share evidence and exchange experience from other countries and exploring what has worked and what has not in addressing challenges related to the collection, pooling and purchasing functions of health financing.
  • Share ideas and discuss and debate strategies on how the private sector can play a proactive role in the implementation of NHI.
  • Explore the opportunities and challenges of NHI.
  • Promote multi-sectoral collaboration and foster partnerships through the work-stream sessions.
  •  Align the roadmap developed at last year’s conference with the NHI white paper.
