Health ministers commit to practical action on UHC

Commonwealth health ministers concluded their one-day meeting on Sunday with agreements on universal health coverage, global security and violence prevention.

They committed to practical actions which included mobilising political commitment by heads of government for universal health coverage to be a national priority; making the economic case for investing to accelerate the achievement of universal health coverage; and support for workforce training on emergency planning, preparedness and response.

More than 200 ministers, senior officials and observers attended the annual Commonwealth Health Ministers Meeting (CHMM), which takes place each year in Geneva ahead of the World Health Assembly.
