As the COVID-19 pandemic exposes and exacerbates existing inequalities in health, vulnerable, stigmatized and marginalized communities are at increasingly high risk. Not only are they particularly vulnerable to the pandemic but their already limited access to quality health services has been interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in other health responses falling behind. Identifying and analyzing health from the perspective of the last mile is vital to mitigating the spread and impacts – both primary and secondary – of pandemics. In this pandemic, it has never been clearer that human health is interconnected. Ensuring universal health coverage in the time of COVID-19 will promote better outcomes for all, because no one is safe until we are all safe.

This event seeks to amplify institutional commitments to UHC, particularly to reach last mile communities first in the COVID-19 response and recovery by highlighting opportunities for implementing UHC, centering our shared commitments to leave no one behind. Join governments, technical partners and community representatives in this timely discussion.
