Commonwealth Health Ministers Meeting 2017


Theme: 'Sustainable financing of universal health coverage as an essential component for global security including the reduction of all forms of violence'

All Commonwealth governments have committed to taking steps to accelerate universal health coverage (UHC); that is, making progress towards ‘ensuring that all people can use the promotive, preventive, curative, rehabilitative and palliative health services they need, of sufficient quality to be effective, while also ensuring that the use of these services does not expose the user to financial hardship’ - World Health Organization

The CHMM will provide member countries with an opportunity to examine a variety of options for sustainably funding UHC, and have the opportunity to share country experiences of effective funding models. Ministers will discuss the challenges and opportunities they face in their efforts to make progress towards UHC.
