Regionally, the P4H Network facilitates collaborations that connect people. P4H fosters knowledge sharing, especially through its digital platform. Also, the P4H Network explores where it can innovate, such as in the area of nonrenewable material and energy resources for resilient health systems.
The P4H Network supports country-level collaborations that contribute to progress in social health protection and health financing reforms advancing universal health coverage. The P4H Network connects to in-country stakeholders through P4H country focal persons, working in 67 countries.
The P4H Network supports regional and intraregional collaborations and knowledge sharing. Key stakeholders include organizations, countries, and individuals in various regions, as well as academic institutions, P4H country focal persons, and P4H regional focal persons. Collaborations and activities with regional groups also create opportunities for cross-regional relationships.
Who We Are
The P4H Network is a pioneer initiative. It was launched during the June 2007 G8 summit in Heiligendamm, Germany. Our mission is to promote, develop and strengthen exchange and collaboration for social health protection and health financing advancing universal health coverage.
Leadership for UHC
The P4H Network’s flagship programme, Leadership for UHC (L4UHC), is designed for senior decision makers. In one year, they boost their leadership skills and build high levels of trust. Their ethos fosters networking across sectors. Since 2016, L4UHC has run 12 cycles of about 120 days.
During an L4UHC programme cycle, decision makers from different sectors agree on a common vision and identify and carry out collective actions. They collaborate to produce concrete and practical results. These tangible results further agendas advancing UHC and help decision makers build coalitions committed to further gains.
