UHC Day 2021: Country Perspectives on Reaching UHC

In 2021, CSEM in partnership with APCASO, Global Health Council, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, Living Goods, NCD Alliance, People’s Health Movement, Save the Children, UNAIDS, and country partners conducted nearly 20 focus groups with civil society about the state of universal health coverage (UHC).

The results contributed to the multi-stakeholder State of Commitment to UHC review and can be found in this global summary.

This civil society-led event marking UHC Day 2021 shared recommendations from these civil society consultations on UHC and key insights from the State of the UHC Commitment review.
