International Universal Health Coverage Day: 12 December



International Universal Health Coverage Day (UHC Day) is celebrated globally on 12 December.

The theme for the 2019 International Universal Health Coverage Day is “Keep the promise”

The day is marked with an aim to raise awareness of the need for strong and resilient health systems and universal health coverage.

The main function of UHC is to promote the human right to health. In fact, it has also been included in the new Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations.
On 12 December 2017, the United Nations proclaimed 12 December as International Universal Health Coverage Day (UHC Day) by resolution 72/138.

Each year on 12 December, UHC advocates raise their voices to share the stories of the millions of people still waiting for health, champion what we have achieved so far, call on leaders to make bigger and smarter investments in health, and encourage diverse groups to make commitments to help move the world closer to UHC by 2030.
