A multi-stakeholder gathering to move the agenda forward.

Consultation Day one

The 'IHP for UHC 2030' multi-stakeholder consultation took place on 22-23 June. Following unanimous agreement for transformation by all IHP+ partners, a broad range of stakeholders gathered for this two-day consultation meeting. Over 100 representatives from low-, middle- and high-income country governments, civil society organisations, international agencies and institutions, private sector and research institutions converged to explore key issues.

The two-day consultation process was a critical stage in transforming IHP+ and explored the strategic direction and scope of work of UHC2030.

Stakeholders discussed UHC2030’s role in advocacy both globally and locally, and how it can be a broker for sharing experience, lessons learnt and good practice in effective development cooperation, health systems strengthening and making progress towards UHC.
