El curso está disponible en English

Social health protection is crucial for every human to remain healthy and to be protected against the financial risk of ill health across the life cycle. At least half of the world’s population is currently unable to obtain essential health services they need and almost 100 million people are being pushed into extreme poverty because they have to pay for health services out of their own pockets. This course will provide professionals with the knowledge and experience to improve health finance and social health protection systems. 

If you are committed to extending coverage of social health protection, this course is for you.
