Keynote: A deep dive into accessible health and how we can achieve it

Our esteemed keynote speaker, Dr. Mariam Jashi, Global Board Member of the UNITE Parliamentarians’ Network for Global Health, Secretary General of the Medical Women’s International Association and Chair of the Advisory Board at Tbilisi Medical Academy in Georgia provided a national and regional viewpoint on humanising healthcare and the importance of patient engagement and collaboration across multiple stakeholders.
 “Co-creation of policies with active engagement of policymakers and patients have to take into consideration the different context at individual country levels, but there are important avenues where we can collaborate to both create data and to empower each other with additional capacities and resources.” - Dr. Mariam Jashi


There needs to be optimum alignment and synergy of the interests, rights, and resource capacities between all healthcare stakeholders to ensure a truly inclusive, equitable, holistic and human-centred approach to universal healthcare. To be most effective, partnerships need to be based on shared responsibility, mutual accountability, and empowerment. There also exists a real need for better policy instruments to help engage patients in policy making to co-create healthcare policies that meet current needs.
