PMAC 2023 Side Event: Climate Change and its adverse impact on Health Financing (Focus on Pakistan)
In Pakistan, access to health and health-related indicators is a major concern. About 39% of the population suffers from multi-dimensional poverty. The country has been trying to achieve the SDG goals by going through a DCP3 exercise and rolling out Essential Packages of Health Services (EPHS) with donor funding.
The country is also working to develop its first health financing strategy and has been a very active supporter of Global Action Plan, with all GAP partners joining an in-country mission in 2020 to discuss strengthening their support to PHC through UHC.
This PMAC 2023 Side Event will use Pakistan as an example of a country where health financing agencies are working closely with the government to address the gaps in funding, aligning their support and providing technical assistance to sustain investment in health amid climate change.
