In 2001 the Argentinian federal MOH launched Plan Nacer (renamed Programa Sumar in 2012) to respond to the health needs of the most vulnerable population groups. Specifically, the federal MOH implemented additional conditional budget transfers linked to results to strengthen the strategic purchasing function in all provinces in order to improve the coverage of a package of prioritized health services, with the ultimate objective of reducing morbidity and mortality. The webinar will discuss how this initiative managed to incentivize provinces and providers to improve quantity and quality of priority health services and what are challenges in institutionalization of this approach.

We are also pleased to announce the tentative schedule for the following webinars this year:

August 13 2019 (8:30-10 AM EST) Strategic purchasing instruments to improve quality of health services: Country focus Indonesia
