IT4UHC Conference

On September 25 to 27, 2013, the Asia eHealth Information Network with support from various partners organized the Information Technology for Universal Health Coverage Conference (IT4UHC). This conference featured a broad set of topics regarding the effective use of information and communications technology in support of universal health coverage. An innovative aspect of this conference is the availability of mature, emerging, and soon to-be-developing social health insurance schemes. It also leveraged the south-south approach to capacity building through the exchange of experts in Asia and Africa.

1) encouraged policy debate on operationalisation of UHC strategies with information technology; at both international and national level;

4) explored needs, contributions and what can be done regionally for country-level impact harmonise development assistance efforts.
