Make sure to register for the Self-Care Learning and Discovery Series so you don’t miss this session on Self-Care and UHC: How self-care can help leave no one behind taking place Tuesday, August 3. In order to reach the goal of universal health coverage (UHC) by 2030, we need every idea on the table for transforming health systems and markets to advance people-centered primary health care (PHC)—including appropriately supported self-care. Join us for a discussion on how evidence-based self-care within PHC can support governments to achieve UHC, and what steps governments and partners across sectors can take to finance and scale self-care tools and approaches in the context of UHC efforts. UHC policy experts, health economists, and self-care champions from different countries will share their experiences, and participants will have the chance to practice making the case for the role of self-care in UHC through an interactive exercise.
