Universal health coverage (UHC) ensures all people, everywhere, can get the quality health services they need without facing financial hardship. It is a fundamentally political goal, rooted in the right to health. It is also one of the smartest investments any country can make.
Every year on 12 December, thousands mobilize on International Universal Health Coverage Day to call for strong, equitable health systems that leave no one behind. And now that leaders from every country have committed to Health for All once again, we’ve heard enough talk. This 12.12, join us to demand action.
All member states are on the record as having adopted the most ambitious and comprehensive political declaration on health in history. Now, it is our turn to send them a message: Keep the promise.
Here are our Key Asks:
