Resource Description: More and more countries are implementing complex health systems reforms to achieve universal health coverage. The Joint Learning Network (JLN) is a country-driven network of practitioners and policymakers who together develop knowledge products to bridge the gap between theory and practice, with the goal of extending health care coverage to more than 3 billion people. The JLN community is comprised of leaders from ministries of health, national health financing agencies, and other key government institutions in 27 Asian, African, European, Latin American, and Middle Eastern countries as well as a diverse group of international, regional, and local partners.
On Thursday, September 22, the HFG Project hosted a technical briefing session on the JLN’s work on the ground, and about Ghana’s National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) on their collaboration with the JLN and the HFG project. Speakers included: Amanda Folsom (JLN Program Director, Results for Development), Nathaniel Otoo, (Chief Executive, Ghana NHIA), Dr. Lydia Dsane-Selby (Director, Claims, NHIA), and Chris Lovelace (Principal Associate, International Health, Abt Associates).
