Event description

Optimal health markets are those where all individuals can access the full range of quality products, services, and information they desire, including from the private sector. Reaching that goal relies on a range of interventions. This webinar will feature speakers who will share experience and lessons learned in supporting health markets to expand access to quality family planning, child health, and HIV products and services. First, discussion will focus on data as a critical step to understand who is not being reached. Second, speakers will touch on legal or regulatory restrictions regarding provider scopes of practice and limited product choices. View the series.
