Description

The Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region has made considerable health progress. Yet inequities in quality and accessibility of health services still persist in many LAC countries. Supporting trained health workers and reducing inequities in access to all health services in the region – including reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health – is essential to achieve sustainable development. This is the unfinished agenda for the region.

The speakers on this high level panel will discuss what's left to be done in LAC to address the remaining gaps in health and development, with specific emphasis on the health systems building blocks, youth engagement, and financing country and regional health systems. The speakers from diverse perspectives will also examine the shifting trends and priorities that will influence the LAC region as it rises to middle income status.

Lunch will be served.
