UHC2030 is the global movement to build stronger health systems for UHC, and plays a convening role for this group of health systems ‘related initiatives’.

As part of the the UHC2030 'family', the related initiatives are committed to promoting the principles of the UHC2030 Global Compact for Progress towards UHC and common approaches to strengthening health systems embedded in Healthy Systems for Universal Health Coverage - a Joint Vision for Healthy Lives, the UHC Key Asks and Health Emergencies and UHC.

They can take advantage of the UHC2030’s multi-stakeholder platform to promote mutually reinforcing action among a broader range of partners and constituencies, share information, learning and resources, and collaborate towards shared health systems objectives and UHC goals.
