Election advocacy guide: Getting UHC on the ballot

By consistently engaging in the electoral process, UHC advocates can influence the selection of policymakers who are committed to prioritizing the fundamental right to health. Sustained engagement also fosters a culture where healthcare is a recurring and prioritized electoral issue.

The Election advocacy guide: Getting UHC on the balance provides guidance for UHC advocates wishing to influence the elections taking place in their countries. 

With elections taking place in over 70 countries in 2024, this is a pivotal moment to ensure your future leaders keep health high on their political agendas and understand the importance of taking urgent and meaningful action towards health for all.
