We are pleased to announce an upcoming webinar series, led by WHO and in collaboration with the Health Systems Governance Collaborative, Health Systems Global, the UHC Partnership, UHC2030 and the Civil Society Engagement Mechanism for UHC2030, which will present chapter findings of a currently developed WHO guidance document, the handbook on social participation for universal health coverage. The handbook will provide best practice guidance to policymakers on how to effectively and meaningfully engage with populations, communities and civil society in national policy, planning and review processes.

The team synthesized available peer reviewed literature and findings from nine country case studies across the world. A consultation on the handbook content is currently open and we encourage all interested parties to take part.

In this series, we will conduct four webinars that discuss specific issues while setting up and institutionalizing participatory governance mechanisms:
