Top Ideas for Health
In March 2016, Haïti Priorise held its fifth sector expert roundtable to discuss the best solutions to address Haiti’s health challenges. Roundtable participants were asked to identify the strengths and weaknesses of current policy efforts and to propose actions they think should be prioritized as a means to improve Haiti’s health sector.
The most notable ideas with regard to addressing health focused on: implementing a social security system, using different contribution programs to fund a social health program, providing subsidies for a basic health package at all hospitals, and expanding mobile clinic programs to provide family planning, HIV, and vaccination services.
