Summit on financing healthcare
The Philippine Health Insurance Corporation and Sanofi-Aventis Philippines Inc., in cooperation with the Department of Health, will hold the first Wealth for Health Summit at the Development Academy of the Philippines, Ortigas Center, Pasig City on July 31. The summit aims to gather local government officials, health-related non-government organizations, patient groups, corporate foundations and other private funders interested in healthcare projects. The one-day forum will discuss issues pertaining to financing healthcare. It seeks to create a continuing platform where various stakeholders can discuss critical healthcare financing issues and identify specific areas of cooperation. “It is a fact that we have to put more money into health for universal healthcare to be possible. This is actually a wonderful time for organizations to get together and contribute to transforming the health system for the well-being of each and every Filipino,” said Dr. Eduardo Banzon, president of Philhealth. Discussions will revolve around resources available for healthcare, healthcare supply such (health infrastructure and healthcare providers), and healthcare demands. It will also present current and even proposed models for financing healthcare projects and programs covering both the demand and the supply side. “More importantly, Wealth for Health serves as a matching opportunity for government entities, NGOs and patient groups that need funding and the corporate foundations, private funders and other international agencies that would like to support healthcare programs in the country,” said lawyer Darwin Mariano, director for public affairs and communications of Sanofi-Aventis. The Wealth for Health Summit is also organized in cooperation with the 162 to 52 Coalition composed of Zuellig Family Foundation, Philippine Business for Social Progress, Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines and Ayala Foundation — Access Health Philippines Partnership.
