A Two-day Conference on the Human Right to Health, Universal Health Coverage and Priority Setting. (360G-Wellcome-106704_Z_14_Z)

This grant would be used to fund a two-day conference exploring the various tensions between what the UN refers to as the progressive realisation of the human right to health, the international effort to secure universal health coverage and the inevitable need to set priorities between different treatments and services. The conference would bring together three research centres within UCL (the Institute of Global Health, the Institute of Global Governance and the Centre for Philosophy, Justi ce and Health) to hear new evidence from researchers, policy-makers and practitioners from both the UK and abroad. The conference would: i) explore existing policy drives towards HRH, universal health coverage and priority setting activities; ii) reflect upon conceptual and ethical tensions between such policies; and iii) assess the feasibility of solutions aimed at resolving this tension. The conference's main output would be a consensus statement, drawn up by Benedict Rumbold and circula ted to delegates before the meeting and discussed by attendees on Day Two of the conference itself, setting out the delegates thoughts on the next steps towards remedying the current conflict between HRH, the drive towards Universal Coverage and priority setting.
