The next UN High-Level Meeting on UHC in 2023 will be a significant opportunity for Heads of State to reaffirm their commitment to UHC and to recognize the role of UHC as an overarching umbrella for SDG 3. The Coalition of Partnerships for UHC and Global Health was launched in the UN High-Level Political Forum 2021 to unite health leaders and advocates in a common goal to align advocacy and accountability efforts to achieve UHC and advance the SDGs.
using the Key Asks from the UHC Movement
In early 2019, diverse actors across the UHC movement – from parliamentarians and civil society to the private sector and academia – shared their calls to action for leaders ahead of the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage.
