12.12.22 • International Universal Health Coverage Day

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.


Universal Health Coverage Day is the annual rallying point for advocates to raise their voices and share the stories of the millions of people still waiting for health, call on leaders to make smarter investments in health and remind the world about the imperative of universal health coverage (UHC).

Calling all #HealthForAll advocates: Join the UHC Day virtual rally! This year, we invite you to: 


  • ASK: Let’s make our voices heard. Ask governments, world leaders, and those in power to act on their commitments to achieve universal health coverage on social media.

  • AMPLIFY: Let’s tell the world why #HeathForAll matters and why it’s critical that leaders act on their commitments to build the world we want. Record a video or write a message answering the question, “How can we build a healthier future for all?” Post your response on social media on 12.12 with the hashtag #UHCDay, and you might be featured alongside world leaders and public health officials answering the same question!

  • ACT: Let’s rally for what’s right – take action and hit the streets, or screens, on 12.12.22 in any way you can. Encourage your friends, family, and networks to participate in the UHC Day virtual rally webinar at 9 a.m. ET/3 p.m. CET on 12 December.
