Description:
The webinar is a joint event with King’s India Institute, King’s College London and Centre for Social and Economic Progress in the form of a panel discussion on the political determinants of health prioritisation. The panel will explore cross national variations in levels of public health investment and political prioritisation of health system improvements. It will explore how and when cross-class coalitions have developed to push for stronger public health infrastructure, including in countries with large middle class reliance on private health. With insights from those who have been involved in the reforms or have studied the motivations for reforms, this panel discussion will bring together global comparative insights into when, why and with what consequences political leaders have invested more in health. It will conclude by reflecting on possible lessons for India.
