Overview

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare systems that were already under strain and lacking funds are now facing additional challenges to ensure they can offer sustainable healthcare to patients. Cost-cutting will not allow for sustained and equitable quality care, while additional funding may not improve results if systems are not structured to use it efficiently. Innovative financial mechanisms are already in use that can help Latin American and Caribbean governments overcome these challenges. 

As we continue our series “A Better Healthcare Future for the Americas,” join the Council of the Americas for an expert panel on value-based procurement. The panel will discuss how this system can provide better and more efficient care for patients, allowing systems to stretch their budgets over the long-term.
