The World Bank Group hosted a global conference on “Improving Efficiency in Health”, from 3rd to 4th Feb 2016. The conference convened those working in the field of health to improve the efficiency of programs and interventions, as well as policymakers, modelers and researchers, and other individuals committed to improving the efficiency of health services. Partners in health financing, government representatives, academics, development organizations and civil society representatives were invited to attend.
The first day of the conference focused on “Efficiency in HIV Responses.” The second day focused on “Efficiency in other Areas of Health, such as TB, Nutrition, Child Health and Hepatitis C.”
The program was designed to facilitate sharing of new scientific knowledge and good practices, offer opportunities for structured dialogue on the major issues facing those working towards improving efficiency within the health sector, and sharing experiences. A variety of session types – from abstract-driven presentations to countries sharing experience, both plenary and parallel sessions – aimed to meet the needs of various participants.
The program included:
- More than 20 experienced speakers
- Four expert specialist panel discussions
- Breakaway sessions looking at new modeling approaches in TB, nutrition, child health and Hepatitis C
