Universal Health Day (also known as Universal Health Coverage Day –UHC Day) on 12 December is the annual rallying point for the growing movement for universal health – to ensure that everyone, everywhere, has access to quality health services without financial hardship.
This year in April, Dr Carissa F. Etienne, PAHO Director, launched the Regional Compact 30.30.30: PHC for Universal Health, alongside the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel Lopez-Obrador, in Mexico City. Also, in September the United Nations General Assembly staged the High-level Meeting on “Universal Health Coverage: Moving Together to Build a Healthier World”. This meeting mobilized political support at the highest-level to ensure that all people receive the health care and protection they need.
PAHO/WHO is supporting the campaign as part of its ongoing efforts to advance universal access to health and universal health coverage in collaboration with its member countries in the Americas.
