11 September - 20 September 2023

With millions of lives on the line, the time for action is now. This #UHCHLM, we need urgent action to achieve #HealthForAll by 2023. Join the campaign from 11 to 20 September to make sure the political declaration gets us back on track.

What's the plan?

8 days, 8 action areas, 8 calls to action for universal health coverage (UHC). Each day will focus on a different action area from the UHC Action Agenda that countries cannot neglect. The calendar below provides an overview of each day of the campaign.

Follow us on LinkedIn and X, formerly known as Twitter, to join the campaign and call for concrete and measurable actions that protect the right to health for everyone, everywhere.

You can download and use social media cards and messages from our campaign resources and use the hashtag #UHCHLM.  

Together, we can hold leaders accountable and make #universalhealthcoverage a reality.
