The session will include a panel of leaders from the donor community, developing countries, and the private sector, who will share their experiences with different funding models – their advantages and challenges, barriers to mobilizing private capital at scale for health and possible solutions for the way forward. The panel will be followed by an open discussion for all participants that will include representatives from governments, funding organizations, the private sector, and leading implementers.
