Universal Health Coverage Day

A GLOBAL
DAY OF ACTION

Universal health coverage is a political goal rooted in the human right to health. But no right has ever been guaranteed until people decided to fight for it.

Now is the time to rise for our right to #HealthForAll and drive courageous political action in every nation.

Here’s how you can join the campaign.

DEMAND
POLITICAL ACTION

Hold your local and national leaders accountable for taking clear steps toward #HealthForAll, putting the poorest and most marginalized first.

Relentlessly make the case that UHC is morally right, economically smart and urgently needed.

CELEBRATE LOCAL
CHANGE-MAKERS

The path to #HealthForAll is not easy, but it is worth the struggle. National advocates and change-makers need to be recognized for every hard-fought step forward.

Amplify sparks of hope in your country and give credit to people who are driving change.

RALLY YOUR COMMUNITY

Illness is universal; quality health care is not. Help people understand why UHC is in their—and everyone’s—best interests.

Create opportunities for marginalized groups, patients, health workers and citizens to raise their voices together.

JOIN FORCES

Partner with advocates from all communities—including those fighting for gender equity, primary health care, national security, fairer economies, the environment and more.

Together, speak out for a shared goal: #HealthForAll.
