UHC2030 Advocacy Guide:

The UHC2030 Advocacy Guide provides an overview of what universal health coverage is, why it matters and how advocates can mobilise bottom-up change at the grassroots and community level to influence national level policies and make meaningful health system reforms, ensuring that no one is left behind.

The guide aims to share specific tools to help advocates call on policy and decision makers to focus on improving three pillars of Healthy systems for universal health coverage - a joint vision for healthy lives: service delivery, health financing and governance. The intersection of these three pillars aims to create an environment in which UHC is a measurable and achievable goal – something we can all get behind.

The UHC2030 Advocacy Guide is a resource to help a wide range of universal health coverage advocates – spanning government, parliamentarians, academia, civil society, the private sector and more – to conceptualise conceptualize and execute successful advocacy strategies that advance UHC at community, regional, national and global levels.
