Before 2023 –  the mid-point of the SDGs - this will be the last chance to mobilise the highest political support to package the health agenda together, under the umbrella of UHC, and sustain health investments in a harmonised manner. To fully accomplish these objectives, it is critical to identify how the UHC political declaration can add value and set milestones to accelerate progress towards achievement of UHC by 2030.

Consultation survey

UHC2030 has been asked to support the preparatory process for the UN HLM, particularly regarding “sharing evidence and good practices, challenges and lessons learned”. Based on the experience with recent high-level events, UHC2030, as a multi-stakeholder platform for UHC, is expected to co-convene the multi-stakeholder hearing of UN HLM with PGA.  This will take place before the formal inter-governmental negotiations of the political declaration.

UHC2030 Partners therefore have an excellent opportunity to feed some consolidated messages into the UN HLM.  The purpose of this survey is to introduce Draft UHC2030 “Asks” for the UN HLM, and to seek contributions from UHC2030 Partners. These Asks will feed into the preparation of the zero-draft of the political declaration, as well as to arrange coordinated advocacy tools and guidance that both member states and non-state actors can use in the formal process, such as for the multi-stakeholder hearing, inter-governmental negotiations and their interventions during UN HLM.

For the purposes of this consultation we define an “Ask” very broadly, to include both specific commitments and more general policy statements and principles to be reflected in the UN HLM outcome document.

In the online consultation, you will be able to respond to three consultation points, by answering a total of 10 questions. The expected time to complete the online survey is approximately 20 minutes:

  1. UHC2030 Asks: Do you support the draft elements of asks that have been developed so far?  To what degree would you prioritize each of these?  Do you have suggestions to modify the draft asks?
  2. Reflecting existing UHC issues and initiatives: Are there other existing UHC initiatives, or issues acknowledged in previous declarations, that you feel should be recognizsed other initiatives and gaps be acknowledged in the political declaration?
  3. Additional Asks: Are there other ‘stretch’ asks that you feel UHC2030 should consider promoting (e.g. asks that go beyond the selection criteria set out above and/or may be challenging to secure inclusion of in the political declaration)?

Before taking this online survey, please read the following background information.  Where possible please include or upload references to previous commitments or declarations in your responses (e.g. resolution title, resolution number and specific paragraph number OR official document title and specific page/paragraph number).  Please also keep in mind the following selection criteria.  These were chosen, based on experience from previous UN HLMs, so that Asks promoted at the multi-stakeholder hearing have the greatest chance of influencing the member states negotiation process and UN HLM outcomes.

Selection criteria

  1. Highest Political Agenda: Does it need the ‘Heads of State’ level political endorsement and member states consensus building through the UN negotiation process?
  2. Initiative Exists: Has the ask been supported by a track record of existing or emerging efforts (e.g. led by UHC2030 Signatories or Related Initiatives, or in other political/economic forums)? Think of it as a political translation of the existing Global initiative or strategy.
  3. Reference Exists: Are there agreed targets or text that have been through the UNGA member states consensus process? Adoption or improvement of existing approaches/language (previously supported in UN declarations or resolutions) is most likely to be acceptable in the HLM negotiations.
