India is gearing up to join the L4UHC programme as part of its drive to accelerate UHC across the country’s 1.3 billion-strong population. Due to start the programme in September 2022, the country will be the 15th nation to take part in this initiative, underlining L4UHC’s growing popularity and value.
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.
One of the key features of the programme is that each team develops and implements a practical, UHC initiative in their country.
Marisol Touraine, former Minister of Social Affairs and Health in France for five years, explains the value of investing in L4UHC.
