Universal health coverage (UHC) ensures all people, everywhere, can get the quality health services they need without financial hardship. Every 12 December, advocates worldwide mobilize on UHC Day to call for strong, equitable health systems that leave no one behind.
With an ongoing global pandemic that has claimed millions of lives, the case for universal health coverage is clear. Join us to remind leaders that UHC is a moral and smart investment that can no longer wait.
Why is UHC so important? – Nina’s happy healthy family meal.
Nina and her family have all had different health problems, but they are now able to sit and enjoy a happy and healthy meal together. This is not the case for many people around the world, which is why universal health coverage is so important. Animation videos are available in 6 UN official languages.
The UHC Day Coordination Group (12.12.CG) is powered by UHC2030, a multi-stakeholder partnership driving the global movement to build strong health systems for universal health coverage.
