UHC Day 2019

UHC Day 2019 was the culmination of a defining year for the universal health coverage movement. Three months after the historic UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage (UN HLM), which resulted in the most ambitious and comprehensive health declaration in history, UHC Day 2019 urged world leaders to Keep the Promise of Health For All.


Led by the multi-stakeholder Coordinating Group of UHC Day (12.12.CG) hosted by UHC2030, the sixth UHC Day focused on country ownership and accountability. Following the momentum of the UN HLM, the number of global partner events and social media engagement surged, overcoming the number of activities in years past.

As the first UHC Day officially recognized by the United Nations as an international awareness day, the focus of this year’s 12.12 extended far beyond civil society engagement. This year’s momentum exceeded past measures of success, with more partner events, more country-level engagement and more creative content on social media.

Action and conversation from this day is already propelling conversations about universal health coverage into related issue areas and generating momentum in the lead up to major milestones, including the UN General Assembly High-Level Meeting on UHC in September 2019.
