The principle of social participation was endorsed in multiple intergovernmental commitments at regional and global levels including SDG target 16.7, the Astana Declaration on Primary Health Care in 2018 and the Political Declaration of the UN High Level Meeting on UHC in 2019. At the WHO regional level, this includes South East Asia Regional Committee (RC) resolution SEA/RC75/C, the Eastern Mediterranean RC resolution on resilience (2022), and the Pan-American RC resolution CD59.R12 on resilience (2021). However, an implementation, especially participation in decision making level are challenges and requires more experience sharing and capacity building.
