Ghana’s National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) has received wide recognition as a promising model for social protection. As part of the commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of the NHIS,an International Conference organized by the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) is scheduled to take place in Accra, Ghana, between 4th and 6th November 2013 under the auspices of the Ministry of Health and the Government of Ghana. This concept note provides an overview of the Conference to be held under the theme : “Towards Universal Health Coverage: Increasing Enrolment Whilst Ensuring Sustainability” The Conference is expected to provide a forum for engaging UHC practitioners, academia, policy makers, international organizations and civil society, both local and international, to examine the NHIS's successes and challenges and to elicit feedback for reform that would not only be relevant for Ghana but also other countries which, like Ghana, are confronted with policy and implementation challenges in financing healthcare as part of their broader UHC goals. It will also provide an opportunity to discuss topics that are critical for the attainment of UHC. Anadach is the technical partner of the conference.
