Build the World We Want: A Healthy Future For All

In the world we want, all people can access quality health services without financial hardship. Universal health coverage lifts people out of poverty, promotes the well-being of families and communities, protects against public health crises, and moves us toward #HealthForAll.

Calling all Universal Health Coverage advocates!


This year’s UHC Day is important for the #HealthForAll community. As you may know, in September, world leaders will meet for a series of High-Level Meetings, including one on UHC, to discuss progress made and gaps to address to achieve #HealthForAll by 2030. UHC Day 2023 offers an opportunity to assess the outcomes of the HLM on UHC and call on our leaders to act on their commitments.


How can you start preparing for UHC Day 2023?

How can we build a healthier future for all?

For UHC Day 2022, we asked health and development leaders from civil society, national governments and multilateral organizations around the world how we can build a healthier future for all. Their responses illustrate what is needed to build the world we want – one where everyone, everywhere has access to essential health services, without financial hardship.
