UHC Day 2023 Theme
This year’s UHC Day theme is Health for All: Time for Action.
As the global community convenes to renew its commitment to achieving universal health coverage (UHC) for billions worldwide, this year’s theme emphasizes the need for immediate and tangible steps. It calls for reflection on a decade of advancements in UHC and urges leaders to enact policies that guarantee equitable access to essential health services without financial hardship.
This year’s theme also reminds us that, in a world that continues to experience a growing number of climate-related health threats, now is the time to invest in resilient health systems that will ensure #HealthForAll. By working across sectors – governments, NGOs, the private sector, and civil society – we can hold our leaders accountable and make UHC a reality by 2030.
In the coming months, we will share more information on this year’s theme, key messages, social media content, graphics, and more!
