Universal Health Coverage Day 2018

UHC2030 will lead global partners to celebrate the first-ever United Nations-observed Universal Health Coverage Day on December 12, 2018.

This year’s UHC Day will be an important milestone following the Global Conference on Primary Health Care, and on the road to the 2019 UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage. It will give stakeholders across the United Nations system an important platform to call for real commitment to Health For All.
