The UHC 2030 Action Agenda from the UHC movement is a set of action-oriented policy recommendations that country leaders should implement to strengthen resilient and equitable health systems, advance universal health coverage and health security, and deliver health for all by 2030.
Universal health coverage (UHC) means that all people have access to the quality health services they need, when and where they need them, including during emergencies, without risk of financial hardship. The means to achieve universal health coverage and health security is strengthening health systems. The most inclusive, equitable and cost-effective approach is primary health care. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, progress on universal health coverage was not on track, and we are now even further away from reaching our goals. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need to build universal health coverage for times of crisis and calm, making clear that universal health coverage and global health security are two intertwined goals.
Urgent action is needed now to make universal health coverage a reality for everyone, everywhere. The Action Agenda from the UHC Movement is a set of eight action-oriented policy recommendations that country leaders should implement to advance universal health coverage and health security, and deliver health for all by 2030.
