15 MARCH 2023 – At the UHC2030 March 2023 Steering Committee meeting, bringing together high-level representatives from governments, multilateral agencies, philanthropic groups, civil society organizations and private sector entities, increased and new donor support was announced for the work of the UHC2030.
“Continued and increased support from our key donors, the European Commission, France, and Japan, is important during this critical year for health,” said UHC2030 Steering Committee Co-chair Gabriela Cuevas Barron. “We are pleased to have Germany and Luxembourg join as donors as well,” Barron stated.
“We welcome the engagement of all UHC2030 Steering Committee members during this important year of the 2023 High-Level Meeting on UHC,” said UHC2030 Steering Committee Co-chair Justin Koonin. “With this additional support from donors, we can strengthen the impact of the UHC Movement, to ensure that all stakeholders have an opportunity to reinvigorate progress towards UHC,” Koonin said.
The UHC2030 Steering Committee met on 13 and 15 March to review preparation plans for the UN High-level meeting on universal health coverage (UHC) and to ensure UHC2030’s broad membership and other stakeholders are all well equipped to mobilise political leadership for ambitious and actionable outcomes in September 2023.
UHC2030 is a global movement to build stronger health systems for universal health coverage (UHC). It brings together health stakeholders and advocates to work together to advance progress towards delivering health for all by mobilizing political commitment, promoting collective action for health systems strengthening, and demanding and tracking accountability.
UHC2030 is governed by a Steering Committee, composed of countries, international organizations, global health funds, private foundations, civil society organizations, and private sector. It is also guided by the UHC Movement Political Advisory Panel, which advises the Steering Committee and Secretariat while simultaneously conveying UHC2030’s messages to high-level political leaders. Secretariat support is provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Bank, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
UHC2030 tracks progress on UHC commitments made by national governments and publishes an annual State of UHC Commitment Report with country profiles available on the UHC data portal.
