On 12 December 2012, the United Nations unanimously endorsed a historic resolution urging all countries to accelerate progress toward universal health coverage as an essential priority for international development.
UHC Day has become the annual rallying point for the growing global movement for health for all. Each year on 12.12, we raise our voices to share the stories of the millions of people still waiting for health, to call on leaders to make bigger and smarter investments in health, and to remind the world that health for all is imperative for the world we want.
UHC Day is organized by the Universal Health Coverage Coalition – more than 1,000 organizations in 121 countries advocating for stronger, more equitable health systems that leave no one behind.
We believe that health is a human right, no one should go bankrupt when they get sick, and that we all must rise for our right to universal health coverage.
