International Universal Health Coverage Day, 12th December


December 2023 | EALTHY Blog | Events

It is a call for leaders to invest in health systems and primary healthcare for all – leaving no one behind. The International Universal Health Coverage (UHC) Day aims to raise awareness of the need for strong and resilient health systems and universal health coverage with multi-stakeholder partners. The general message of their annual campaigns is to highlight the need to protect everyone regardless of where they live and to ensure that they have access to primary healthcare. The main three areas of interest of the UHC focus on population coverage, service coverage, and financial protection.

The 2023 theme Health for All: Time for Action is to remind us that with the increasing number of climate-related threats, countries must invest in resilient and equitable health systems with primary care as the foundation. The subthemes focus on specific actions such as:

  • Investing in universal health coverage
  • Strengthening health systems
  • Expanding primary healthcare
  • Working across sectors and communities
  • Promoting innovation to reach everyone
