Overview of Caribbean Health Financing Conferences

Theme: Information Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics in Health: Managing Costs, Optimizing Benefits for the Caribbean

In response to requests from Caribbean governments to ‘do more’ in health, Heads of Caribbean Social Security Organizations at their 17th General Meeting (Belize City, June 2006) agreed to establish a Caribbean forum for discussing relevant approaches, challenges and lessons learnt in design and implementation of health financing programs.

As such, these Health Financing Conferences are organized to share knowledge, test ideas and build capacity as we learn from policymakers, researchers and managers who have direct and indirect responsibility for planning, decision-making and administering health financing initiatives.

Recognizing the multiple sources of knowledge in health and related health financing matters, the Conferences have actively expanded participation to involve experts and officials with first-hand experiences from Ministries of Health, Social Security Organizations’, national health financing agencies, international organizations, health insurers, third party administrators, as well as health services networks, research agencies, IT companies, actuarial firms and academic institutions.
