We supported the Colombian government in establishing a dialogue with German experts on issues of prioritization and pharmaceutical policy, payment mechanisms between providers, and risk adjustment of the health premium to cover the Benefit Plan.

This exchange, which began through emails and teleconferences, materialized in a workshop in the city of Bogotá on June 24 and 25. In the first part, the German experience on these issues was presented to different actors in the Colombian health system and recommendations were made for the local context. The second part was divided into working groups for each of the above topics, in which the government actors in charge of defining these policies participated.
