Post High-Level Meeting Action Planning
Our Calls to Action
When the global community renewed its commitment to achieve Universal Health Coverage, we made a promise to secure health access for all and to prioritize hard-to-reach populations. Community-based primary health care is critical for achieving this goal as it bridges the gap between facilities and a country’s hardest-to-reach populations. The Communities at the Heart of UHC Campaign calls for the prioritization of quality community health programs that are financially sustainable and integrated in country health systems at the United Nations High-Level Meeting on UHC (HLM-UHC).
