Official Launch

Representatives from national governments, multi/bilateral donors, academia, nongovernmental organizations and the private sector gathered on the sidelines of the Global Conference on Primary Health Care in Astana, Kazakhstan, on September 26 for the official launch of the Communities at the Heart of UHC  campaign.

Panelists, including the Honorable Dr. Jane Aceng, Minister of Health of Uganda; Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO of Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance; and Liz Jarman, CEO of Living Goods, shaped the discussion.

The panelists agreed that community health programs are essential in extending quality primary health care services to rural and vulnerable populations and that local community health workers are critical in delivering those services.
