The push to include universal health coverage in the emerging Sustainable Development Goals has created renewed interest in how health systems are financed and how these allocations are distributed. Donors, activists, policy makers and academics are all concerned with ensuring that service users do not suffer financial hardship when accessing health care. But where is a gender analysis in all of this?
We know that health financing and reforms have gender implications, for example, in the budgets available for gender audits, the extent of financial protection for different groups, the availability of certain services, and the out-of-pocket expenditures of different groups. This webinar seeks to share information on the available evidence and highlight some of the information gaps. We hope it will stimulate a wider conversation among health sector stakeholders who are concerned with social justice. Please join our exciting panel to learn more and to have your say!
