Self-care interventions as an essential part of a well-functioning health system

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines self-care as the ability of individuals, families and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health, and to cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a health-care provider.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, when health systems are overwhelmed with the immediate response, and in planning for a sustainable, quality health care delivery post-COVID-19, self-care interventions for health are and will play a major role in ensuring the right to health for all.
Join us in this first seminar by WHO and the World Bank, discussing the increasing role of self-care interventions to build sustainable health care during and post-COVID-19 pandemic.
Speakers include:
Dr Muhammad Ali Pate, Global Director for Health, Nutrition and Population, World Bank Group and Director, Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents

Dr Ian Askew, Director, Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research, WHO

Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho, Minister of Health and Population Welfare, Sindh, Pakistan

The State of UHC Commitment: Survey 2020

UHC2030 is currently collecting stories and evidence on how people access and experience health care services in their communities.

Many countries are taking real and measurable steps forward to achieve UHC. To better understand these global and country commitments, we’re producing a multi-stakeholder review called the ‘State of UHC Commitment’ with hard data about how governments are delivering on their commitment to UHC.

This survey is seeking responses from organizations working towards UHC and aims to:
  • Gain insight into progress towards UHC at country and community levels through collecting the experiences of non-government actors, especially civil society and private sector
  • Ensure that UHC2030's State of UHC commitment review reflects the reality of UHC in communities.
