WHO has released new health expenditure data and the report “Global Spending on Health: Weathering the Storm”. It describes global patterns and trends in health spending and progress towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC) prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the changes to resource allocation levels in 2020 arising from country responses, and the challenges raised by the macroeconomic and fiscal fallout for future health spending and UHC.  The main findings and messages will be summarized in a short presentation during the event, followed by panels including representatives from countries, academic institutions, civil society organizations, and partner agencies.
