Closing the last mile gap to quality healthcare

Event Details
  • June 26th, Wednesday, 2:45pm - 4:15pm
  • Room 309

The last SDG Dashboard shows that global efforts to achieve Good Health and Wellbeing (SDG3) are making progress towards this development goal. However, this progress is uneven – communities that are remote or inaccessible continue to be denied quality healthcare services. Even within urban areas, there are communities who face barriers in equitable access and affordability.

While there are significant investments to-date to close this Last Mile access to healthcare, the complexity of healthcare provision and the ecosystem that enables it means there needs to be aligned efforts across multiple players.

This panel will explore how funders are engaging in research, workforce development, grassroots and community healthcare, and the collaborative opportunities between these important factors that lead to closing the last mile for vulnerable communities to access quality healthcare.
