This year, in order to take advantage of the fact that the United Nations is hosting two high-level meetings - one on UHC and and one on Climate Action - the Access Challenge, as part of our new One by One: Target 2030 campaign, will host its annual high-level conference on the nexus between UHC and the climate action.
Our conference, ‘Achieving UHC: A Sustainable Future for Africa’, will catalyze conversations on how best to translate the dual calls of Africa Agenda 2063 and SDG 2030 into UHC in Africa. We are bringing leaders from across both the UHC and environmental sectors to define and contextualize the meaning of UHC in Africa in order to draw on the best practices, gaps, synergies, and object lessons to develop a roadmap for the way forward.
The One by One 2019 Conference will take place on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly. Participants will include: African Heads of State, Ministers of Health, Environment, Finance, Transportation, Energy, and Education, Ambassadors to the United Nations, heads of donor agencies, multilateral and bilateral development partners and foundation leaders, private sector CEOs, entrepreneurs and innovators, NGO leaders, civil society representatives, and youth activists.
