It was entitled ‘Financial protection in Uganda: Reflections from an HFPM assessment’ and was part of the session entitled ‘Addressing Deteriorating Financial Protection in Health: Measurement Issues and Policy Responses’.

Financial hardship is deteriorating in Africa and indeed globally; this session demonstrated how to estimate financial hardship indicators, present findings from WHO’s Health Financing Progress Matrix country assessments, primarily in Africa, and reflect with an expert panel how to accelerate policies which address deteriorating financial protection.
