In Lomé, WHO trains experts from five African nations on ways to better assess risks related to spending on health services

(Togo First) - The World Health Organization (WHO) is currently holding in Lomé a four-day workshop for public health officers from Benin, Cameroon, Guinea, Mali, and Togo. The experts will be taught how to assess monies spent on health by populations, by using the most recent data. 

In detail, participants will learn about ways to estimate indicators of financial protection in the health sectors, methodology, and techniques used to assess household expenditures on health services, by using appropriate databases and statisticsa software.  

Through the workshop, the experts will better understand risks related to these spending, contain them and improve access to health services for populations. 

The long-term goal here is to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC), which WHO set in its general program of work adopted in 2018. The global organization indeed wants a billion people to benefit from the coverage. 

Around the world, about a hundred million people are plunged in poverty due to the high spending on health services, while about 800 million spend more than 10% of their revenues to access them.
