TICAD 7 Official Side Event
Yokohama, Japan, August 29

On August 29, 2019, JCIE is co-organizing an official side event during the Seventh Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7) that will convene the heads of African Union (AU) member states (tbc) with senior representatives from the African Union Commission (AUC), Gavi, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), The Global Fund, the World Bank Group, WHO, and civil society to discuss challenges and pathways toward implementing AUC country commitments on sustainable domestic investments in health.

The meeting aims to share progress made so far by AU member states in mobilizing domestic resources toward achieving Sustainable Development Goal 3 (SDG 3) on Universal Health Coverage (UHC), and explore the role that external funding and technical assistance can play in supporting country efforts toward this goal. The meeting builds on the work of the Africa Leadership Meeting on Investing in Health (ALM) and JCIE’s International Advisory Group on Global Health, which have made a set of mutually reinforcing commitments and recommendations on coordinating the efforts of key partners around country efforts to maximize the impact of development assistance for health while continuing to strengthen country ownership over their health systems.
