Who We Are - P4H Network

The P4H Network is the global network for social health protection and health financing. Launched as a pioneering initiative during the June 2007 G8 summit in Heiligendamm, Germany, its mission is to promote, develop, and strengthen exchange and collaboration advancing universal health coverage through social health protection and health financing. 

Composed of 21 diverse members, including multilateral and bilateral institutions, development banks, global health funds and partnerships, as well as academia, the five founding members of the P4H Network are the International Labor Organization, the World Bank Group, the World Health Organization, France, and  Germany. 

P4H Terms of Reference
