Afrihealth Optonet Association (AHOA) shall organize a global Town Hall Meeting on 10 December 2023 to discuss the above “Addressing violence against women and girls and gender-based violence associated with Universal Health Coverage in resource-constrained environments” in commemoration of the UHC Day. Coming on the heels of the ’16 Days of Action’ to end VAWG/GBV, this virtual event shall attract participants from countries across all the continents, and focus on the theme “Health for All: Time for Action”. The keynote speech shall be delivered by Prof. C Onyebuchi Chukwu, who was the Honourable Minister of Health in Nigeria during the Ebola outbreak. He took actions that successfully tamed the Ebola rampage and secured the health/lives of Nigerians during the Ebola outbreak, to the admiration of the global Health Community. Participants shall openly and freely discuss VAWG/GBV that are associated with providing, accessing, supporting, funding and managing Universal Health Coverage in resource-poor populations; including recommendations to eliminate VAWG/GBV. The Meeting shall explore the critical roles of the civil society and community in this effort, and the use of partnerships, advocacy, research/evidence-generation, capacity development, outreach interventions, monitoring and evaluation (M&E) to achieve these roles. A ‘Statement’ is expected from the town hall meeting that shall be an added value towards achieving ‘Health for All’ through the UHC.
