Everyone has a role to play to make universal health coverage a reality.
Universal health coverage (UHC) ensures all people, everywhere, can get the quality health services they need without financial hardship. Every 12 December, advocates worldwide mobilize on UHC Day to call for strong, equitable health systems that leave no one behind: Health for All.
With an ongoing global pandemic that has claimed millions of lives, the case for universal health coverage is clear. Join us to tell leaders that UHC is a moral and smart investment that cannot wait.
How It Came About
In early 2019, diverse actors across the UHC movement – from parliamentarians and civil society to the private sector and academia – shared their calls to action for leaders ahead of the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage. This participatory process resulted in the Key Asks from the UHC Movement, which helped influence the most ambitious and comprehensive political declaration on health in history, and informed the commitment areas in the State of UHC Commitment Synthesis.
