According to the 2018 Lancet Global Health Commission on High Quality Health Systemsmore people die from low-quality health care than from lack of access to health services. However, even as leaders become increasingly vocal about prioritizing quality across the continuum of care,investments in quality-assured medicines and diagnostics are often overlooked, to the detriment of patients, providers and broader development goals.

On the sidelines of the 72nd World Health Assembly, please join us for a series of high-level conversations on the importance of ensuring quality medicines and diagnostics as a foundational element of high-quality health systems and universal health coverage.

The event will feature diverse perspectives from country ministers, health providers, patient advocates, global development leaders and donors, and explore the solutions, investments and actions we need to address urgent gaps in the years ahead.
