The UN High-Level Meeting (UN HLM) on Universal Health Coverage took place on 23 September 2019 during the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) high-level week. This was a great opportunity for all universal health coverage (UHC) champions and advocates to make their voice heard and help mobilise high-level political attention globally and in their countries.

The meeting was a hugely significant achievement for Member States who reached agreement on a Political Declaration and reaffirmed their highlevel political commitment to UHC. It was also a time for celebration for everyone in the global UHC movement who has campaigned long and hard to get here.

Most important of all, this highest level political commitment for achieving UHC holds life changing potential for the 3.65 billion people who currently lack affordable and accessible quality health services.
