Aligning with the theme of Mobilizing action to accelerate change for Davos 2023, INSEAD will once again be alongside the World Economic Forum thanks to our partnership with InTent, sponsor for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Tent from 18-19 January 2023. Hosted by the Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society, we will convene faculty, distinguished speakers and experts to speak at two sessions – Achieving the Goal of Universal Health Coverage by 2030: Successes and Challenges from Emerging Market Countries and Integrating Income & Impact: 3 Secrets.
Our aim at Davos as a management education research leader is to leverage upon this research and knowledge to inform business world efforts.
Join us as we showcase data and best practices in support of businesses and governments undertaking sustainability commitments in the UN's "Decade of Action", and support organizations to realize their sustainability roadmaps to accelerate change.
Achieving the Goal of Universal Health Coverage by 2030: Successes and Challenges from Emerging Market Countries
Panel & Breakfast (this session will also be broadcast live)
This panel session addressing “Good for Business. Business for Good” will be hosted by the INSEAD Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society in partnership with the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Centre for the Study of Wealth Inequality and the Healthcare Management Initiative (HMI) at INSEAD
Numerous world leaders have made a commitment to universal health coverage (UHC)—i.e., the provision of healthcare for all—by 2030. Attaining this goal is particularly critical in developing countries so that individuals and communities can access healthcare services without fear of catastrophic financial repercussions. The topic of UHC encompasses a number of issues, including healthcare financing, and cooperation between government and the private sector.
This panel will focus on emerging market countries at different stages of development with regard to their UHC programs. Indonesia has made remarkable progress since launching its national insurance scheme, BPJS Kesehatan, and has reached 84% of the population in about five years; yet, issues of financial sustainability have emerged as a key concern. Kenya launched universal health coverage pilots in four counties in 2018 and is currently scaling up across 47 counties, although reduced public sector investments in the near-term will require finding efficiencies and greater effectiveness in its spending. India’s launch of Ayushman Bharat (PM-JAY) provides insurance coverage to 40% of the low-income population, or 500 million people, for hospitalizations. A second pillar of India’s program, AB-HWC, aims to strengthen primary health, including screening and treatment for low-income groups. While this is viewed as an important step towards UHC, out of pocket expenses remain high particularly for outpatient care.
Each of these countries has thus made significant strides toward the UHC goal. At the same time, however, critical challenges remain. We will assemble a panel of experts to understand the progress achieved, lessons learned, and remaining challenges toward the 2030 goal, such as the use of public financing, structuring effective collaborations with the private sector, and improving quality of care.
