- The message is clear: Everyone, everywhere has a right to quality health services without fear of financial hardship or discrimination. #HealthForAll UHCDay.org
- During a pandemic and always, lifesaving care should never just go to the highest bidders. #COVID19 vaccines must be free and accessible to everyone, prioritized for those most at risk. #HealthForAll
- At least 1/2 of the world’s population lacks access to essential health services. If everyone could get the promotive, preventative, curative, rehabilitative & palliative services they needed, the story of 2020 would be very different. #HealthForAll
- Make no mistake: we cannot #ProtectEveryone without comprehensive #SRHR for all. Yet in #COVID19 & always, essential health care for women, girls and marginalized groups is too often overlooked – or worse, deliberately cut back. #HealthForAll
- Even before #COVID19, 100 million people were pushed into poverty each year because of health costs. We can’t go back to the status quo. We must invest in health systems that protect everyone – NOW. #HealthForAll
- 1 in 10 people globally have a mental illness and studies show that #COVID19 is causing rising levels of anxiety, depression & psychological distress. Health systems that #ProtectEveryone must include affordable, accessible #MentalHealth services for all.
- #HealthForAll is not wishful thinking. Leaders can and must reach everyone based on need, not ability to pay, with services free at the point of use. Our lives depend on it.

- When a child gets sick, no parent should have to worry about whether they can access or afford quality care. We have the tools to protect children everywhere from disease & ill health—but only if leaders increase investments & action for #HealthForAll #UHC2030
- Investing in strong #PrimaryHealthCare is one of the best ways to help people lead the healthiest lives possible, and if they get sick, provide the right care, at the right time, right in their communities. #HealthForAll #UHC2030
- As countries progress toward #UHC, more attention must be given to populations in fragile & conflict-affected settings, who are among the most vulnerable #LeaveNoOneBehind #UHC2030 #HealthForAll

- Everyone’s health needs are different, but their right to health is the same. Our health systems must be ready to provide the full spectrum of promotive, preventative, curative, rehabilitative & palliative services based on need, not ability to pay. #HealthForAll #UHC2030

Ensuring that all people, regardless of race, gender, age, citizenship or ability, are represented in the movement for UHC.

- To achieve #UHC, #GenderEquality and the future we all want by 2030, countries should ensure that girls & women are at the helm of decisions that will affect their health, rights & wellbeing.
- To ensure that health systems deliver the services people say they need, rather than services someone else decides they should have, we must invest in strong #PrimaryHealthCare and citizen engagement in every community. #HealthForAll #UHC2030
Suggested posts: Investing more and smarter
Mobilizing resources equitably and efficiently—including by aligning funds across diverse issue areas—to ensure everyone can get the health care they need without fear of financial hardship.
- Health costs prevent millions of people from seeking or getting the care they need. Protecting the right to health means protecting people from financial hardship. #HealthForAll
- Getting sick should not mean bankruptcy and poverty. That’s why protection against financial hardship must be in place to achieve #HealthForAll. #UHC2030 #HealthForAll
- ~100 million people are pushed into extreme poverty paying for health services every year. That’s 100 million too many. It’s time to ensure that no one has to pay out-of-pocket to get the care they need. #UHC2030 #HealthForAll
- #UHC is a smart investment & achievable goal everywhere. To deliver on the promise of #HealthForAll #UHC2030, countries can & must increase investments in the health of their own people. #UHC2030 #HealthForAll
- Lack of affordable, quality health care traps families and nations in poverty. #UHC can ensure that no one has to choose between good health and other life necessities. #UHC2030 #HealthForAll
