UHC2030 Private Sector Constituency
As a member of the UHC2030 Private Sector Constituency - a convening platform for private sector entities contributing and collaborating towards UHC hosted by the World Economic Forum - the Global Self-Care Federation is pleased to support the recent Private Sector Statement that was launched in parallel with the UN HLM.
The launch of the Private Sector Constituency Statement is the first time that the private sector has collectively recognized the significant role it can play in achieving UHC. The private sector offers a diverse range of health products and services and provides more than 60% of health services in some countries.
In 2015, world leaders made a commitment to achieve UHC by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals. On Monday 23 September, world leaders will gather for a UN High-Level Meeting in New York with a dedicated focus for the first time on UHC and recommit to achieve UHC by 2030. To complement the political declaration on UHC, the private sector statement provides a basis for further dialogue with all UHC stakeholders on shared vision and collaborative action to maximize private sector contributions to UHC. Following the High-Level Meeting on UHC, the UHC2030 Private Sector Constituency will work on putting the statement into action and will involve other stakeholders to collaborate on UHC.
