The experiences of the People’s Republic of China and South Korea, two countries with universal health coverage that were hit early by the COVID-19 outbreak, are interesting for other countries as part of ongoing country-to-country learning and South-South cooperation efforts, and the global response to the pandemic. In this webinar, speakers from China and South Korea shared their countries’ experiences from the health sector perspective and how essential health services were delivered at the height of the pandemic. They also addressed some of their plans for recovery.
