CSO Conference on Global Health and Universal Health Coverage


February 25, 2014: Global discussions on the post-2015 agenda are gaining momentum as the current Millennium Development Goals are approaching deadline. In view of the current global health challenges, the Action for Global Health (AfGH), together with The Western and Central African Regional Network (REPAOC) of NGO Platforms realized the need for clarity on the ways in which UHC could be defined and implemented by national and international governments in the post-2015 framework. The two organizations therefore, co-hosted the Civil Society Organization (CSO) Conference on Global Health and Universal Health Coverage workshop in Dakar, Senegal on February 17-19, 2014 where global CSO participants from 33 countries were invited to drive the debate and conclude with a joint declaration (soon to be in the public domain) on the right to health and on universal health coverage (UHC) as an instrument to achieving this right. Our Senior Research & Communication Associate, Mariam Malik represented Heartfile at this convention.
