Did you know that one third of the world’s population needs rehabilitation at some point in the course of their illness or injury? Yet rehabilitation is often underprioritized in countries’ health systems and UHC strategies. On February 2nd, the Health Systems Strengthening Accelerator and the Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage (JLN) are co-hosting a webinar that will bring together UHC and rehabilitation leaders to exchange country experiences with rehabilitation, including how (or whether) it is integrated within health systems and UHC strategies, and the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Key panelists include:
Dr. Adolfo Martínez Valle from Mexico, a JLN Steering Group Convener
Dr. Akanle Olufunke from Nigeria, Registrar/CEO of Medical Rehabilitation Therapists Regulatory Board of Nigeria
Maryke Bezuidenhout, Assistant Director of Physiotherapy at Manguzi Hospital, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa
