Engaging communities and leaving no-one behind is central to achieving the transformative promises of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including the achievement of Universal Health Coverage (UHC). However, governments and global health institutions have failed to meaningfully engage diverse communities in the UHC processes, and any attempts to date have been slow and inconsistent.
This event will invite pivotal global UHC stakeholders to advocate for the rights of those left behind to be able to participate in health governance processes at the national and global levels. The event will also be an opportunity to amplify the importance of social participation within health governance processes at both the national and global levels.
