LNCT HSR Panel Session: Should Public Health Programs be Integrated into National Health Insurance? The Case of Immunization

December 9, 2020

LNCT is leading a panel session at the 6th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research on December 9, 2020. The session will examine the case of immunization in three countries, from three regions, that have established NHI. The countries include Georgia, Ghana, and Indonesia. The session will examine experience to date in order to highlight important considerations for public programs as NHI systems are developed. Lack of attention to these considerations could results in setbacks to important public health programs. The session will also focus on how countries have or are planning to transition from Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, support in the context of important health system changes. Gavi is the largest single source of external support for immunization programs.
