BRINGING UNIVERSAL HEALTH COVERAGE TO LIFE

L4UHC enables senior decision-makers to develop the leadership skills and collective actions needed to bring universal health coverage (UHC) to life in their countries.

The one-year programme helps multi-disciplinary teams from each country address specific obstacles to progressing their UHC plans more rapidly. It does this through a combination of proven methodologies and first-hand experiences.

KEY BENEFITS OF THE PROGRAMME

L4UHC develops the personal and collective leadership skills needed to broker consensus and gain political commitment for change.

Teams from different countries work together, share experiences, and visit ‘host’ countries that have successfully developed UHC.

We help participants from different fields, such as health and finance, form coalitions for collective action in their home countries.

One of the key features of the programme is that each team develops and implements a practical, UHC initiative in their country.

After the programme ends, our development partners in your country can provide technical and financial support to help you make greater progress.
