In our efforts to strengthen health systems and achieve UHC, we collectively subscribe to the following key principles to guide our action:

  • Leaving no one behind: a commitment to equity, non-discrimination and a rights-based approach
  • Transparency and accountability for results
  • Evidence-based national health strategies and leadership, with government stewardship to ensure availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality of service delivery
  • Making health systems everybody’s business – with engagement of citizens, communities, civil society and private sector
  • International cooperation based on mutual learning across countries, regardless of development status and progress in achieving and sustaining UHC and development effectiveness principles.
