  1. Hi!
    This is a great initiative!
    We’d like to let you know about a UHC series UNICEF is launching in Cape Town, during the 3rd HSR symposium.
    Equity in the context of universal health coverage: the launch of a research series. [Thursday 2 October 8.15-­‐9.15am Room 1.63-­‐1.64]
    The hands-on Breakfast Session seeks an active discussion by participants on a series of new working papers produced under a UNICEF project, supported by the Rockefeller foundation, called “Universal Health Care with equity through health system reorientation and strengthening.” Core publications are:
    1. Access to health services: analysing non-financial barriers in Ghana, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Rwanda using qualitative methods. A review of the literature. UNICEF Working Paper. Bedford, J., A. Singh, M. Ponferrada and L. Eldred (2013).
    2. Access to health services: analysing non-financial barriers in Ghana, Rwanda, Bangladesh and Vietnam using household survey data. A review of the literature. UNICEF Working Paper. Thiede, M. and K. Koltermann (2013).
    3. Determinants of the non-uptake of health services: a quantitative analysis of household survey data from Ghana, Rwanda, Bangladesh and Vietnam. UNICEF Working Paper. Thiede, M. and K. Koltermann (2013).
    4. Universal Health Coverage: A Commitment to Close the Gap. New York, The Rockefeller Foundation, Save the Children, UNICEF and the World Health Organization. Brearley, L., R. Marten and T. O’Connell (2013).
    5. Addressing equitable access through innovation: case studies from Ghana, Uganda and Rwanda. J. Bedford, M. Thiede, C. Dickey, O’Connell, T. UNICEF Working Paper. (2014).
    6. Integrating an approach to assess UHC access barriers into district health systems strengthening in Uganda, Ghana and Rwanda. O’Connell, T., J. Bedford, M. Thiede, C. Dickey. UNICEF Working Paper. (2014).
    7. Barriers to equitable access: towards a mixed-methods approach. O’Connell, T., J. Bedford, M. Thiede, C. Dickey and D. McIntyre. PlosOne (2014).
    8. Rapid Assessment of Barriers to the Universal Uptake of Immunization, Antenatal Care and Skilled Birth Attendant Services. UNICEF Working Paper. Zikusooka, C. M., B. Kwesiga, C. Abewe, S. Lagony, S. Kanoowe and T. S. O’Connell (2014).

    Addressing inequities in access to quality needed care, for a variety of social and economic causes, as well as financial risk protection must be a first priority in efforts to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC). Together, these contribute to the evidence base designed to make UHC a more inclusive and equity-directed process that builds on local knowledge and innovation. We look forward to your participation in the discussion.
