Entitled, “Private Sector embracing Universal Healthcare”, the theme for the 2017 conference centered around how the private healthcare sector can embrace the move towards Universal Healthcare and prepare for the changes ahead. Whilst government takes the lead, the expertise, experience and capabilities in the industry will help deliver on the “promise to leave no one behind”.
As with any change, the journey towards Universal Healthcare will present new challenges. However, the promise of partnership, political will and good leadership might make the journey ahead a lot easier than we have all imagined. Whatever form the role maybe – partnering towards UHC seems the most prudent move to ensure the healthcare industry participates fully and is not left on the outside.
The conference offered a great opportunity for networking with like-minded individuals towards a common goal.
