Health Benefit Packages for Universal Health Coverage: How can research inform policy and practice?
19 May 2020
Health Benefit Packages (HBPs) are an important part of the health resource allocation decision-making process for national policy-makers in many low and middle-income countries. HBPs are used to help determine which healthcare interventions and services should be classified as ‘essential’, and inform how to prioritise often limited health resources. However, HBPs can often be disconnected from budget realities and result in HBPs which far exceed available resources, making them challenging to implement fully. Join a panel of experts who will discuss the latest theory and methods used in HBP design, and provide insights into how this is currently being applied in Malawi.
