Strengthening health systems for UHC: translating the joint vision into action
December 12th, 2017, 8:00-9:00am
Tokyo Prince Hotel 'Kobai'
This event is free and open to the public.
The Joint Vision paper Healthy systems for UHC – a joint vision for healthy lives was launched at a high-level side event of the 70th World Health Assembly and outlines health system performance dimensions and policy entry points to promote Universal Health Coverage (UHC) through health systems strengthening. It serves as key reference document for the UHC2030 partnership and as a broader resource for the global community to inform collaboration on the health system strengthening and UHC agenda.
During the side event we want to discuss how the Joint Vision is translated into action and critically examine key levers for reaching UHC by 2030. Looking at practical examples of strengthening health systems for UHC, the event brings together the experience of various stakeholders, ranging from country representatives to civil society.
