Health is one of the Big 4 Pillars. The 6thAnnual Devolution Conference provides a key opportunity for prioritizing actions to be addressed in the sector, through the Conference resolutions. The Overall Conference theme is “Deliver. Transform. Measure. Remaining Accountable”. The Conference is structured to address issues in the Big 4 sectors and associated enablers, and will discuss the following Health sub-themes:
§ Sub theme 1: Providing status of UHC
§ Sub theme 2: Review of the Enablers of for UHC
§ Sub theme 3: Setting targets
Health stakeholders are enthusiastic as demonstrated by the high level of attendance at the Health sector planning meetings. The sector stakeholders will therefore have the opportunity to practically interrogate the factors that will accelerate the implementation of the Universal Health Coverage, which is about access and affordability. Even though the sector has positioned itself to ensure every stakeholder get opportunity to effectively participate at the conference, not all key stakeholders may find time to attend. Those who may not attend will therefore be catered for through the formation of the health sector Community of Practice (COP) sessions where they will be provided a chance to contribute to the proceedings. The COP will start on 13 Feb 2019 and end on 31 March 2019.
