WHO’s 13th General Program of Work (13GPW: 2019–2023) will be presented to the World Health Assembly this May. Hailed as one of the most inclusive in WHO’s 70-year history, this latest GPW has Universal Health Coverage at its core and champions WHO’s role in delivering the Sustainable Development Goals.

In this lecture Dr Vivian Lin, Director, Health Systems, World Health Organization Regional Office for the Western Pacific, will present a global overview of the 13GPW and plans for implementation in the Western Pacific Region. She will showcase WHO’s ‘action agenda’ on the SDGs in our region, drawing on country-specific work in Vietnam, Cambodia, Solomon Islands and the Philippines.

The presentation will provide tangible examples of WHO’s work to accelerate progress towards the SDGs and UHC in the Asia Pacific. It will cover WHO’s support to countries transitioning away from a reliance on aid to domestic financing; efforts to better regulate and improve the quality of health care; the expanding role of e-health; and hospital management and planning.

There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion after the presentation.
