As per the resolution A/RES/74/2 adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2019, the high-level meeting (HLM) on universal health coverage will be held in New York in 2023. The aim is to accelerate progress towards the achievement of universal health coverage by 2030
In September 2019, Heads of State and Government endorsed an ambitious and comprehensive political declaration at the United Nations General Assembly high-level meeting on universal health coverage (UHC), reaffirming the right of every human being, without distinction of any kind, to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health and recommitting to achieve universal health coverage by 2030. The declaration was adopted through resolution A/RES/74/2, with a decision to convene a high-level meeting on universal health coverage in 2023 in New York.
The 2023 high-level meeting (HLM) aims for a concise, action oriented declaration based on a comprehensive review of the implementation of the 2019 declaration, lessons learned from COVID-19, identified gaps, and evidence-based recommendations to accelerate progress towards the achievement of universal health coverage by 2030.
