UN High-Level Meeting on UHC: MMI input and analysis

Basel, 7 May 2019. The preparations for a UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage (HLMUHC) that will take place on 23 September 2019 are in full swing. The theme of the UN HLM will be “Universal Health Coverage: Moving Together to Build a Healthier World”. In April, UHC2030 published a "Key Asks" document, and an "interactive multi-stakeholder hearing" took place in New York.

The MMI Network and its working group on Effective Health Cooperation follow the preparatory process closely. Find our input and reflections here:
