Stronger health systems are the backbone of progress towards UHC and all of the health SDG targets. A diverse group of international partnerships, alliances and networks focuses on strengthening different aspects of health systems.
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 ‘family’ of UHC2030, 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 UHC2030’s discussion paper on health emergencies and UHC.
They can take advantage 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.
This document presents a short profile of each UHC2030 Related Initiative with information about opportunities to work together.
