Civil society assessment of the political declaration of the UN-HLM on UHC

UHC dominates the discourse on global health policy today. It can be interpreted in multiple ways, but its dominant discourse seems to be favouring market based neoliberal reforms. We are concerned that the HLM may end up reinforcing the same. Therefore People’s Health Movement, Partners In Health and Medicus Mundi International urge those discussing UHC at the UN HLM to engage with the concerns expressed in this assessment by civil society.
