Event description

Description

More than half of the world’s 7.7 billion people are not receiving all of the essential health services they need. Yet experience shows that countries that have prioritized integration and partnership between the public sector and private local partners have been more successful in their path toward universal health coverage.

Leading up to the United Nations General Assembly’s first-ever High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage (UHC), MSH and USAID’s Office of Health Systems invite you to 'Locally Leading the Way to UHC' on September 24th, 2019.

This event will recognize the winners of USAID’s Inclusive Health Access Prize: private local partners that prove public and private sectors working together can expand access to affordable, accountable, and reliable health services in their own countries.
