13-17 November | Eden Hotel in Montreux, Switzerland
Theme: Adjusting Public Financial Management (PFM) for better health: new evidence to shape next-generation reforms
Since 2014, WHO has convened biennial meetings of the Montreux Collaborative, bringing together experts and partners to discuss the critical relationship between fiscal space, public financial management (PFM), and health financing in advancing universal health coverage (UHC). The aim is to raise the profile of public finance’s role in achieving UHC, to generate and exchange ideas and lessons to support the implementation of tailored reforms in the health sector, and to consolidate and broaden the network of experts and partners interested in public finance issues for health.
As with prior meetings, this year’s event is organized in close collaboration with partners involved in this area of work, including the World Bank Group, the lnternational Monetary Fund (IMF), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Develoent (OECD), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance (Gavi), the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund), lnternational Budget Partnership (IBP), Results for Development (R4D), and ThinkWell.
- Take stock of lessons from COVID-19 for PFM and health financing reform, and identify PFM features conducive to resilient systems
- Deepen the understanding of PFM requirements for effective PHC financing
- Unpack health budget execution issues and discuss joint solutions between finance and health
The 2023 Montreux Collaborative meeting will be hybrid, held both in-person and online. The meeting venue is the Eden Hotel in Montreux, Switzerland.
