COVID-19 has now spread to nearly every corner of the world and is causing unprecedented health and economic effects in health systems globally. While early attention focused largely on the public health and epidemiological aspects, the pandemic has also raised some important questions as to how health financing systems can help countries respond, mitigate impact, and recover. COVID-19 has also challenged priorities to achieve Universal Health Coverage, including the investment into common goods for health, individual vs. public health services, the role of the private health sector, and health financing arrangements. In this seminar, we plan to bring together economists from Indonesia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo who have dealt with previous outbreaks and/or are currently dealing with the current outbreak as well as a representative of the World Health Organization to learn more about investing in global public goods for outbreak and outbreak response.
