United Nations (UN) General Assembly - Universal Health Coverage Declaration

At the UN General Assembly High-Level Meeting on September 21, 2023, world leaders approved a new Political Declaration on “Universal Health Coverage (UHC): expanding our ambition for health and well-being in a post-COVID world”. The Declaration promotes the need for all people to receive the health care they need, when and where they need it, without facing financial hardship. The statement builds on a 2019 UN Declaration on the same topic, with stronger language regarding the need for access to rehabilitation services and assistive technology.
