Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN) Global Meeting 2016
July 20-22, 2016Putrajaya, Malaysia

The  Joint Learning Network (JLN) Global Meeting, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Malaysian Ministry of Health, the Rockefeller Foundation, the World Bank, USAID/Health Financing and Governance Project, and other development partners, will bring together practitioners and policymakers from all 25 Full and Associate member countries in Putrajaya, Malaysia from July 20 to 22, 2016 to share learning around the successes and problem-solve around the challenges of implementing health financing and service delivery to expand coverage and promote primary health care oriented universal health care.

The workshop will span three days and will provide participants from 25 countries the opportunity to share and learn from one other and engage in in-depth learning on technical topics of highest priority across JLN countries. The workshop will leverage a range of learning modalities (e.g., from large group presentations and discussion to small working group issue-focused problem solving sessions) to maximize participant engagement and learning. This flagship meeting will support existing technical initiatives, identify new areas of technical areas of focus, and provide an opportunity to energize JLN members around primary health care improvement as a pathway towards universal health coverage.

Please note that the 2016 JLN Global Meeting is by invitation only.

Over the course of the three days, the workshop will:

  • Energize the network by developing stronger ties and a sense of community among all JLN members, including the 16 new Associate member countries;
  • Review JLN experience to date across technical initiatives and identify opportunities for more cross-technical collaboration;
  • Enable participants to gain a deeper understanding of what works and how to pursue stronger primary health care (PHC)-oriented universal health coverage (UHC) based on the experiences of multiple countries, and problem-solve jointly with other participants on relevant issues;
  • Develop a shared vision of PHC-oriented UHC creating champions for reform who will begin thinking about the policy, institutional, and organizational reforms required to build resilient PHC-oriented systems to achieve UHC;
  • Highlight specific needs (e.g. funding, technical assistance, monitoring/evaluation, research, etc.) of JLN members that might be met by new technical initiatives or other external assistance, and set an agenda for future JLN activities.
