With some insurance companies already refusing to payout on COVID-19 related cases, claiming the pandemic is an ‘Act of God’, patients and policy makers alike are wondering who is going to pick up the bill for the pandemic and who is going to fall through the funding cracks.
Health inequalities have rarely been so stark. In the fourth and final webinar of the series, we will hear insights from industry experts as they weigh in on this topical issue. Many are already facing financial constraints. Amidst this socio-economic disruptor that is COVID-19, how do we protect all members of society, especially the most vulnerable?
Key Discussion Points:
- Funding pandemics: resources for planning
- Should patients pay for care?
- Model healthcare systems: healthcare financing models to emulate
- Benefits and balance sheets: cushioning healthcare workers on the frontline
The COVID-19 Exchange
COVID-19 has taken the world by storm. The virus has infected millions, thousands have died and there is much to learn, unlearn and learn again. With many countries currently enduring different phases of the pandemic, sharing experiences has already proved beneficial and coming together has never been more important.
That’s why Medixus and Bobab have teamed up to deliver a series of webinars - The COVID-19 Exchange - focused on sharing COVID-19 learnings and best practice. Over the course of four online events, we’ll be bringing together healthcare professionals, scientists and policy makers from Africa and around the world to connect, share and collaborate.
