UHC Day 2023: Health for All: Time for Action

On 12 December 2023, campaigners and advocates worldwide mobilized on UHC Day to call for strong, equitable health systems that leave no one behind. Building on momentum from the United Nations High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage held in September 2023, campaigners called on leaders around the world to act on their commitments to #HealthForAll.


With 110+ events in 39 countries, 540+ pieces of media, 14 government pledges, 89 champion messages, and 300+ advocacy letter downloads from 45 countries, UHC Day 2023 marked an exciting milestone for the UHC community.
