IHP+ has transformed into UHC2030. You can still access the old IHP+ website and resources for now, and read about the transformation process here

CSOs are playing a critical role in building their constituency for a strong equity-focused and people-led movement for UHC. 

Through a broad consultative process, CSOs have set up the Civil Society Engagement Mechanism (CSEM) of UHC2030 to represent their constituency.

An interim group of CSOs with an interim secretariat will operate until December 2017 when the CSEM will become fully operational. The CSEM wants to strengthen a broad and inclusive UHC movement, which can influence policy design and implementation and facilitate citizen-led accountability. The aim is to build strong CSO voices and contribute significantly to UHC2030, ensuring systematic attention is paid to the needs of the most marginalised and vulnerable populations so that ‘no one is left behind’.

Civil society organisations are also invited to become UHC2030 partners and sign the global compact.

“Through the UHC2030 CSEM, we are able to deliver stronger advocacy for UHC in Africa,” said Mr Itai Rusike, Executive Director of Community Working Group on Health (CWGH) and Coordinator of the African Platform for UHC. 

"To make real, consistent and sustainable progress towards UHC, the global community needs to consider stronger investments in civil society and communities’ work on policy change, resource mobilisation and accountability."
