The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), the Global Surgery Foundation (GSF) and Harvard Medical School’s Program in Global Surgery and Social Change (PGSSC) are hosting a special Online Event Series on the newly published National Surgical, Obsetrics and Anaesthesia Planning (NSOAP ) Manual.
The NSOAP Manual aims to help countries increase their capacity to deliver safe and affordable emergency and essential surgical, obstetric and anaesthesia services.
This series explores the NSOAP process through different lenses, offering stakeholders a unique opportunity to learn more about its benefits.
EVENT #4: Donors’ perspective on funding NSOAP implementation: A discussion about the various funding strategies
Funding NSOAPs remains a key barrier to their successful implementation. In addition to the traditional domestic sources for funding health services, such as taxes and social insurance, the large-scale provision of surgical services stimulates the economy through creation of new jobs, supply chains, and markets. This unique aspect can generate innovative financing for investments in health.
This online event explores the role of governments, donors, development finance institutions, industry and the private sector in the financing of the NSOAP implementation. It also offers unique perspectives on how to innovatively finance surgical system buildup.
- Describe the role of governments, donors, development institutions, industry and the private sector in financing the surgical system expansion.
- Name some of the unique ways to innovatively finance NSOAPs.
- Understand how to access private capital while improving equitable provision of surgical care.
This Webinar is made possible thanks to the support of Johnson & Johnson.
