How can we ensure that we don't over-promise and under-deliver on the commitments made in the political declarations?
Join a panel of eminent speakers as we take stock of the collective impact of previous United Nations High-Level Meetings (UNHLM) and chart the pathway on how we can meet targets and be accountable for commitments which make an impact on global health.
At the September 2019 UNHLM on Universal Health Coverage (UHC), world leaders will be asked to agree to ambitious actions to institute UHC in their countries. This will be the fifth health-themed UNHLM in four years, following on from HIV/AIDS (2016), Antimicrobial Resistance (2016), Non-communicable Diseases (2018) and Tuberculosis (2018). While each of these high-level meetings has resulted in an ambitious Political Declaration endorsed by Heads of State, investments in health remain stagnant in many countries, and the world needs to continue developing accountability and monitoring mechanisms to measure progress and impact.
The UNHLM on UHC represents an historic opportunity to build on the collective political will of previous UNHLMs and to work together to ensure that all commitments and targets from these Political Declarations are achieved.
