Time to get our act together on UHC and health emergencies

UHC and health emergencies

The COVID-19 crisis is a sharp reminder that everyone, everywhere should have access to quality and affordable health services. Health is a fundamental human right and the foundation of economic prosperity and security.

The crisis demonstrates powerfully the need for health systems that are resilient enough to respond to emergencies, maintain essential health services and manage shocks in ways that protect the most vulnerable.

UHC2030 is strenghtening its multistakeholder perspective on UHC and health emergencies. On 27 May 2020, we will launch a discussion paper in collaboration with partners to consolidate our vision for resilient health systems, and priority actions for both emergency preparedness and UHC goals.

In this newsflash, UHC2030 brings you some key resources and insights from partners in the UHC movement. We hope you find them useful and join us in promoting health systems and UHC as fundamental during this global crisis.

From the Core Team. [...]
