Health is a human right. But we have a long way to go until everyone—no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they have—can get the quality health care they need and deserve. This Universal Health Coverage Day, join advocates around the globe to demand action and results in every country. Among the hundreds of partner-led activities that will mark UHC Day around the world, there will be a historic UHC Forum in Tokyo from 12-15 December to galvanize collective action toward #HealthforAll. The forum is hosted by the Government of Japan, World Bank, World Health Organization, UNICEF, UHC2030 and JICA.
