UHC2030 Co-Chairs’ statement on COVID-19 and UHC
The UN High Level Meeting on the “Universal Health Coverage (UHC): Moving Together to Build a Healthier World” was a hugely significant achievement for Member States who reached agreement on a Political Declaration and reaffirmed their high-level political commitment to UHC. It was also a time for celebration for everyone in the global UHC movement who has campaigned long and hard to get here.
Now, after this historic moment, we all have a critical role to play in ensuring that leaders are held accountable to their promises and that their words translate to action. The first step is knowing exactly what leaders committed to during the UN HLM.
We’re pleased to present a document summarizing the key targets, commitments and follow-up actions contained within the UHC Political Declaration for the UN HLM in 2019, in relation to the Key Asks from the UHC movement.
By bringing together the key asks and political declaration commitments in this way, the document provides an outline for strategic multi-stakeholder advocacy and accountability to help translate UN HLM commitments into action.
The theme of UHC Day 2019 is 'Keep the Promise' and we hope this document provides a strong foundation for advocacy leading up to and beyond 12.12.19.
