As part of the preparations for the UN High-level Meeting on universal health coverage (UHC), the President of the UN General Assembly and the WHO are organising an interactive session to gather input on UHC. It is expected that over 600 individuals will take part, both in person and online. You can see the programme for the day here and follow along on the live webcast here. Interested in taking part? You can tweet your questions to @UN_PGA using #HealthForAll.
The UICC Knowledge, Advocacy and Policy (KAP) team will be attending in person in order to highlight the critical need for countries to include cancer within their UHC plans, as well as the opportunities and synergies that this could provide. After the event, we will provide a short summary of the discussions below.
