SDG Goal 3 demonstrates a renewed global commitment to health, underpinned by target 3.8 for Universal Health Coverage. It presents an opportunity to promote a comprehensive and coherent approach to health, focusing on health systems.
In the light of SDG Goal 3, the IHP+ Steering Committee recommended that a proposal should be developed to expand IHP+’s mandate to also cover coordination and advocacy aspects of support for HSS and UHC.
The IHP+ Steering Committee decided to recommend to the IHP+ Signatories to broaden the scope of IHP+ to include facilitating moving towards UHC and better coordinated HSS and offer participation to a broader range of partners.
An online survey of IHP+ signatories showed that 87% of respondents are very much in favour of IHP+ expanding its mandate.
In response to a second letter from the World Health Organisation and the World Bank, IHP+ signatories agreed to expand the scope of IHP+ on 19th May 2016.
