In September 2019, world leaders endorsed the most ambitious and comprehensive political declaration on health in history. Many countries are now taking real and measurable steps towards achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC). To better understand this, UHC2030 is producing a multi-stakeholder review called The State of UHC Commitment with hard data on how governments are delivering on their commitment to UHC. However, this data will have much more impact when accompanied by real-life stories, which is why UHC2030 have launched the UHC Survey 2020 to capture the real stories of UHC and how people access health services in their countries.
This webinar is aimed at CSOs, private sector and other non-governmental stakeholders working on UHC. A presentation on ‘The State of UHC Commitment’ and the accompanying survey will be held, followed by an interactive discussion on UHC progress and challenges. This will be an opportunity for participants to understand, discuss and reflect on the survey questions in order to facilitate the process of providing their response.
This is the first in a series of four webinars, two of which will be in English, one in French, and one in Spanish. This event will be held in English.
This webinar is co-organized by UHC2030, the Civil Society Engagement Mechanism for UHC2030 (CSEM) and Chatham House.
